Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Jump to Recipe

When I hear peanut butter and chocolate in the same sentence or recipe, I always pay attention. Β I’ve done my fair share of baking with both ingredients, but when they come together the results are divine. My new favorite peanut butter chocolate treat are these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies. I am a huge blondie fan and these do not disappoint.

Josh is allergic to peanut butter so I shared these blondies with our friends. I am always happy to share my baked goods, but these were hard to give away. I might of even shed a tear when I handed a plate of blondies to our friends. It was sad to see them go. I knew that if I kept them I would have eaten the entire 9 by 13 pan by myself. So it is a good thing that I shared:)

I love this recipe because they are easy to make, you don’t even have to wait for the butter to soften. The blondies are soft, chewy, and have the perfect peanut butter and chocolate balance. I used milk chocolate chips this time around, but semi-sweet chocolate chips would be delicious as well.

If you swoon over peanut butter and chocolate desserts, you have to make these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies. I can’t wait to make them again and I might not share next time:)

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips I used milk chocolate

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350Β°F. Grease a 9-inch by 13-inch pan and set aside.
  2. 2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from the heat, and stir in the peanut butter, until creamy and combined. Set mixture aside to cool.
  3. 3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. 4. Add the eggs, one at a time, to the peanut butter mixture, mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla extract and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared dry ingredients, and stir until batter is smooth. Fold in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips, reserving the rest for sprinkling on top.
  5. 5. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, spreading the batter evenly to the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips and lightly press them into the batter.
  6. 6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden and the edges are slightly browned. Remove blondies from oven and place them on a wire rack to cool. Once cooled, cut into squares and serve.

  1. When I hear PB & choc in the same recipe, I pay attention too! It’s my fave combo, or one of. I also love sunflower seed butter but in baking, I love the results I get with PB.

    The blondies…look amazing.

    Sorry you gave them away. I would have been shedding a tear too!

  2. aw, i kind of feel bad for josh being allergic to peanut butter when there’s goodies like this out there! one of our close friends is also allergic to peanut butter…good thing our house isn’t though πŸ™‚ they look divine!

  3. These look yummy! So.. what exactly is the difference between these and cookie bars? They look just like the chocolate chip cookie bars I make (minus the peanut butter). Just curious!

  4. I’m pretty sure waiting for butter to soften is one of my least favorite activities in the world, so these get brownie points for not forcing me to do it! And you’re right about the PB/choc combo…heaven.

  5. Hello from SPAIN VIGO … again after a very long vacation, visiting your blog posts and recipes .. I have seen precious ….. visit my blog …. I put the pan to see if you like TE SIGO and invite you to share my recipes and blog .. hugs and kisses Marimi

  6. peanut butter, chocolate, blondies…I WANT! yum. looks like a great recipe. I”ve made that recipe from Joy the Baker, thanks for reminding me of it!
    I’ll be making these soon, but I don’t think I can share!

  7. I don’t think there’s someone who doesn’t pay attention when peanut butter and chocolate are put in the same sentence, unless one’s allergic, of course

    These blondies look amazing, I’d sure so a little crying if I have to share!

  8. I am usually a blog stalker, not a commenter. Your blondies look delicious and I plan on having the kiddos help make some this weekend. My son is allergic to peanut butter and I make all of the peanut butter recipes with “Sunbutter” instead. He loves being able to be just like the other kids. Maybe Josh (although he is a big kid) would like to try something with the “Sunbutter” too. There are many different brands of sunbutter but the “Sunbutter” brand is made in a dedicated nut free facility.

  9. OH MY GOSH! I think this is the recipe I have been looking for! One of the vendors sells these at my local farmers’ market and I get one (or two) EVERY weekend! I’ve been wondering how to recreate them – the ingredients are listed on the brownies but not the amounts. I’m going to try this ASAP!
    Thanks so much!

  10. I made these today and they tasted great.
    Of some reason, I keep thinking that this batter would make some killer cookies.

  11. This is my first time making blondies. I wasn’t sure how this would turn out but I used Jif Natural chunky peanut butter. They turned out really good. I really like the peanut butter & chocolate combination. Yum! I’ll definitely make these again. Thank you for the recipe!

  12. I just made these blondies, and are they ever good! Warm or room temperature, the bars are great both ways, especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing this recipe, it made my evening extra special!

  13. Hey! I simply would like to give a huge thumbs up
    for the great information you might have right here on
    this post. I might be coming back to your weblog for extra soon.

  14. I made these tonight and they were amazing! I probably added a few more chocolate chips, but that’s never a bad thing. I also happened to have Reese’s peanut butter chips and mixed a few in! Yummy!!!

  15. These is amazingly good. I used crunchy peanut butter in this recipe and they still taste good. And a glass of cold milk on the side to top off you won’t go wrong.

  16. Looks and sounds wonderful! Β Wondering if I could use chunky style peanut butter (because that’s what I currently have on hand)? Β  I know, I know……I could go to the store and get creamy peanut butter…..just wish I didn’t have to. Β Either way, I can’t wait to try this! Β
