Peanut Butter Bars

These yummy little numbers are super simple to whip up.  Making them bars, instead of cookies, is easier, faster, and less messy.  Rather than using peanut butter, I go with peanut butter chips.  The chips give you little bursts of creamy, peanut-buttery goodness with every bite.  I also use whole wheat flour which is a bit healthier and enhances the nutty flavor and texture.


  • 2 sticks butter, melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/8 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 10-ounce bag peanut butter chips
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spritz a 9x13 baking pan with buttery spray.
  • Pour melted butter into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the sugar, vanilla and honey and stir until thoroughly blended.
  • Add the baking soda, baking powder and salt and mix well.
  • Pour in the bag of peanut butter chips and mix well.
  • Pour in the beaten eggs and stir.
  • Add the flour and mix until thoroughly blended.
  • Pour dough into prepared baking pan and spread to cover pan.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until the edges are turning golden brown.
  • Cool completely and slice into bars.
