If you find yourself invited to the ever popular cookie exchange party, I offer you this “sure thing” bar cookie recipe everyone will be sure to love.
It’s a delicious twist on the classic “Blondie” with the addition of some peanut butter and peanut butter baking chips. Super yummy!
They’re an ideal choice for your holiday baking line-up or as a compliment to your morning coffee to help get you going. They could not be easier to prepare. You can also try adding toffee bits or other baking chips as well – have fun with it. Happy baking and snacking!

Peanut Butter Blondies
>> 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
>> ½ cup butter, melted
>> ½ cup creamy peanut butter
>> 2 eggs, lightly beaten
>> 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
>> 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
>> 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
>> 1/2 teaspoon salt
>> 1/2 cup (3 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
>> 1/2 cup (3 ounces) peanut butter baking chips
In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, peanut butter eggs and vanilla just until blended. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to wet mixture. Gently stir in the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.
Spread into a greased 13 x 9 baking pan. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Take care not to over bake. Cool on a wire rack and cut into bars.
