Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Blondies are a dessert bar made for chocolate and peanut butter lovers! They're chewy, rich, and a little bit like a Reese's peanut butter cup in the form of a bar!

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 + ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs + 1 egg yolk room temperature
  • 1 + ¼ cup all purpose flour sifted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup semi sweet or dark chocolate chips + more on to for decoration
  • sea salt flakes on top optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars on low. Add peanut butter. You can also use a food processor for this recipe.
  • One by one add eggs and yolk. Beat on low until all combined.
  • In a separate mixing bowl combine dry ingredients and then add to wet ingredients. Mix on low until everything combines. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour into a 8 or 9 inch brownie pan (greased or lined with parchment paper). Decorate with chocolate chips and sea salt flakes if using.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. The center should still be a little wobbly.

Notes

Every oven is different, I recommend checking the blondies towards the last 20-25 minutes. Like with brownies, it is better to unbake these blondies rather than overbake.
The texture of these blondies is soft, buttery and chewy.
The edges will get cooked faster and may be a little dryer, but these can be easily cut off before serving.
