Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondie Bars

So….after a very chaotic week that has consisted of being bed ridden with the flu and exercise deprived it was topped off with saying goodbye to the job I’ve held & enjoyed for the past 2 years. Even though I’ve been feeling a little down in the dumps I have had loads of time on my hands to get cooking! Here’s a recipe for all you peanut butter lovers out there. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 cup rapadura sugar (use brown sugar if you’re NOT cooking sugar free)
  • 1/4 milk (i used almond milk)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brown rice flour (or a similar gluten free flour. Plain flour if you’re NOT cooking gluten free)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (divided in half. you will melt 1/4 cup and drizzle on top)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C. Line baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, oil, and rapadura sugar.
  3. Stir in milk and vanilla.
  4. Stir in flour, salt and baking powder. The batter will be very thick.
  5. Transfer to baking pan and press it into place. Sprinkle the peanuts and 1/4 cup chocolate chips on top, pressing them gently into the batter.
  6. Bake for approx 25 minutes until a light golden colour.
  7. Remove from oven and cool completely before slicing into squares or hearts. Melt the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips and use a fork to drizzle on top of each square/heart. Enjoy!
