Peanut Butter Bars

It has been a LONG while since I last baked. Baked these yesterday – a gloomy, rainy day, where I stayed indoors. If you know me, I absolutely love PB&J sandwiches (tunafish comes second). So I feel like maybe I should’ve added jelly somewhere in here, just maybe. Or maybe raisins too?! Am I being a little too creative… But anyways, here’s to all those peanut butter fanatics out there!  


1/2 cup (1 stick unsalted) butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 eggs
dash of vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
dash of salt
1 (macintosh) apple
2 handfuls crushed walnuts
2 handfuls (dark) chocolate chips


  1. In a pot under medium-low heat, melt butter and sugar, then set aside. Add peanut butter, stir in eggs one at a time, and vanilla.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and soda, and salt. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and mix well. Fold in chopped apples. Sprinkle walnuts and chocolate chips.

350F, Prep Time: ~15 mins, Bake Time: ~20 mins, 16 bars.


Only a spoon is needed to mix everything together 😉
