Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 24 squares 1x


Peanut butter cookie bars with a plethora of chocolate chips. Eat them while their warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or eat them as a snack when their cooled. 


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used half mini chocolate chips and half regular)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F. Spray a 13 x 9 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the butter and sugar. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla until combined. Whisk in the peanut butter until combined.
  3. All at the same time add in the flour, baking powder and salt. Use a large spoon (like a spatula or wooden spoon) to fold the flour into the wet mixture.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached.
  6. Serve the blondies hot with scoop of vanilla ice cream or let them cool completely in the pan for 2 hours and then cut them into squares and serve.
