Test driving some recipes. I have to make this since I love blondies. I am adapting the recipe to the following:
2 cups flour¾ teaspoon baking powder½ teaspoon baking soda½ teaspoon salt2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature1-1/2 cups (packed) light brown sugar½ cup sugar2 large eggs1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips1/2 cup white chocolate chips1 cup  butterscotch chips or Heath Toffee Bits 1 cup  coarsely chopped toasted walnuts
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9” x 13” baking pan and put it on a baking sheet.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt (make sure all the lumps are out).
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter until smooth and creamy. Add both sugars and beat for another 3 minutes, or until well incorporated. 
Add the eggs one by one, beating for 1 minute after each addition, then beat in the vanilla. 
Add the dry ingredients. Fold and combine just until they disappear into the batter.
Using a rubber spatula, stir in the chips and nuts Scrape the batter into the buttered pan and use the spatula to even the top as best as you can.
Bake in the center rack for about 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of the blondies comes out clean. The blondies should pull away from the sides of the pan a little and the top should be a nice honey brown. 
Transfer the pan to a rack and cool for about 15 minutes before turning the blondies out onto another rack. Invert onto a rack and cool the blondies to room temperature right side up.
Cut into 32 bars, roughly 2-1/4” x 1-1/2”
