As you’ve probably noticed, I adore the combination of salty and sweet. From cookies to brownies to cake, a little salt with your sweet just elevates some desserts to magical levels.
As is always the case, at least with me, simple is pretty magical, too. You’ll have these mixed up and in the oven in a matter of minutes. Plus, you likely will have all the ingredients on-hand most anytime you get a sweet and salty craving.
I made these within a few days of these cookies, putting whole wheat flour to work again. While I’m certainly not a whole-wheat-only convert, I do like to use it sometimes for a little variety. Add to that dark chocolate chunks and a sprinkle of salt, and you’ve got a sweet and salty treat sure that’s sure to please.

Oh boy! These look heavenly!! Love these chewy lookin’ thangs.
These look ridiculously good right now. Add these to my never ending list of Bake or Break blondie recipes to try! They always look so incredible.
These look great! I’m also really glad that I don’t have to click on a link to see the recipe anymore, I can simply scroll down! 🙂
Heaven in a blondie! I adore the salty sweet combination too – it’s impossible to beat!
Love the new format of the website. These look delicious. I think I’ll try them with Maldon salt!
These sound AMAZING! Must make them the next time a chocolate urge strikes!
ugh – I hate how good these are. These damn things turned into a dinner for me and the pork roast went back in the fridge. Thank God it was a small pan and not a 9×13.
I love chocolate with salt. YUM!
I literally just read this recipe, checked my pantry, and made these in 15 minutes flat! They are in the oven now! Can’t wait to eat one!
ooooh, I know what I’ll be baking tomorrow – yum! Salty & choc is *such* a fab combination.
I, too, adore the combination of salty and sweet. My mouth started watering looking at these pics–an ultimate sign that I need to put my apron on and start baking away! Thanks for sharing. Love your blog!
Do you have to use whole wheat? I don’t have any right now.
And I really want to bake these!!
Paige, you can use all-purpose flour for these. It may slightly alter the consistency, but they should be fine.
Made these last night and they are quite yummy and easy to make which is the best kind of baked goods.
One thing to note is the center will looks undone when you take them out and even though many sweets are better right out of the oven, I find that these need to be cooled completely/overnight for it to set and be eaten. I tried one out of the oven and it tasted like melted butter and oily and undercooked…..almost thought it was a flop. Glad I tried them again this morning and they are perfect! Chewy, salty and sweet!
