Chocolate Chip Pan Chewies

Recently, I sat down on the couch for family movie night and we all instantly agreed that something sweet was in order. I didn’t want to delay the movie by starting a lengthy cookie or cake project but I definitely agreed that we needed something sugary to snack on, so I did a quick search for something fast and sweet. And I found these. Somewhere between a chocolate chip cookie bar and a gooey blondie, these delicious Pan Chewies were in the oven before the opening credits were over, no pause button needed. They’re that easy. And oh my, are they good.

These take literally five minutes or less to mix up. You start with melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and one egg that you stir together before adding in some flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

And then there are of course plenty of chocolate chips. It’s closer to the consistency of cake batter than cookie dough, so there’s no dough to scoop or divide – you just pour it into a baking pan and maybe smooth it out a bit with a spatula if you need to.

Chocolate Chip Pan Chewies


1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat and Prepare:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×9-inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
Mix Wet Ingredients:
In a medium bowl, stir together the melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and egg until well combined.
Combine Dry Ingredients:
Add the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda to the wet ingredients. Stir until fully combined.
Add Chocolate Chips:
Stir in the chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Once baked, allow the pan chewies to cool slightly before slicing and serving. Enjoy the delicious chocolatey goodness!
