Ingredients

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large egg whites
1/3 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350°.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Set aside.

Combine brown sugar, vanilla, and egg whites in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed 1 minute. Add flour mixture, beating just until combined. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips.

Spread batter into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake bars at 350° for 18 minutes or until golden and crusty on top. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
