Preheat oven to 350F
Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper for easy removal and to cut cleanly. If you don’t use parchment, lightly grease the pan.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt to combine.
Cream the butter and sugar about 3-4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well. Add vanilla and mix in.
Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
Fold in milk chocolate chips, then fold in strawberries, don’t over-mix..
Spread evenly in your pan and bake for 30 minutes for gooey -35 minutes for a firmer bar — but don't bake past that. The blondies will be lightly golden.
Cool before cutting.
