Peanut Butter Blondies

A Year of Crockpotting is one of the food blogs I check every day and this recipe (click) for peanut butter brownies caught my eye. (She got the recipe from this blog before that – (click) ) Stephanie cooks everything gluten-free and in a slow cooker, but not having gluten free ingredients or a slow cooker, I made my own version which came out great anyway. I also added pecans, and called mine blondies because they’re not chocolate-based… although they are brown, I guess

Peanut Butter Blondies

Variation by me (original versions linked above)

5 tbsp butter, melted (measure THEN melt)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chip
Handful of roughly chopped pecans (optional)
Mix everything together, then spread into a greased brownie-type pan (square or rectangular, not very deep). Bake at 350 F for about 25-30 minutes or until the edges are firm and turning darker brown.

I served these warm out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce, but that’s absolutely not necessary, they’re amazing on their own. Make these for anyone who likes peanut butter and chocolate. They’re a little crisp on top and perfectly fudge-y in the middle.
