This is one of the easiest and most delicious desserts ever. These bars are blondies mixed with peanut butter mixed with crack. Kinda. This was one of my favourite treats when I was a kid especially because the little girl in the picture with the recipe looked a lot like me. Well, what I imagined I looked like. Let me just say, I wish I had an ounce of the self-esteem now that I did as a kid. And I don’t mean that as a knock to my 25 year old self. I’m saying I was really certain in my adorableness when I was six. Like weirdly certain. Anyways, enjoy!
1 c. peanut butter
6 tbsp. softened Earth Balance buttery substitute
1 1/4 c. sugar
3 eggs made with egg substitute, follow package directions
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2 c. chocolate chips
Preheat the 350°F.
In a large mixer bowl, beat peanut butter and Earth Balance until smooth, about 1 minute.
Add sugar, eggs made with egg substitute and vanilla. Beat until creamy. Blend in flour and salt. Mix in 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
Spread in to ungreased 9×13″ baking pan. If you want to make your squares bigger use a 8×8″ pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges start to brown.
Immediately sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over cookie layer. Let stand for 5 minutes until chips become shiny and soft. Spread evenly over top. Cool completely. Cut into 1 1/2 inch bars.
