When I hear peanut butter and chocolate in the same sentence or recipe, I always pay attention. 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
- 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
- 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch by 13-inch pan and set aside.
- 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. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- 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 ½ cup of the chocolate chips, reserving the rest for sprinkling on top.
- 5. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, spreading the batter evenly to the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with the remaining ¼ cup chocolate chips and lightly press them into the batter.
- 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.

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!
Wow, the middle of these brownies look soooo moist and ultra delish. Love how this recipe is made primarily with basic pantry ingredients too.
What yummy bars! My hubby love PB & chocolate combos. He will be happy for this one!
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!
Looks incredible! Yum.
I love blondies!! And OMG these look so good! Can’t wait to try!
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.
I will have to pick up some Sunbutter! Thanks for the suggestion!
I always pay attention to peanut buter and chocolate in the same sentence, too. These look amazing!
I am a blondie fan too! These look amazing!
You’re right Maria, you can never go wrong with the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. These look like the perfect dessert treat!
Allergic to peanut butter?? What a sad sad life for your husband.
These sound perfect. I have made your plain chocolate chip cookie bars before and they are a favorite!!
THese seriously look A.MAZING.
I just have one question, can I use the recipe to be made in a 8×8 pan? It looked AMAZING and DELICIOUS! So I really wanna bake it.
Yes, just half the recipe. Enjoy!
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!
I hope you enjoy the blondies!
I made these today and they tasted great.
Of some reason, I keep thinking that this batter would make some good cookies.
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!
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. 🙂 Thank you for sharing this recipe, it made my evening extra special!
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.
Howdy! I simply want to give a huge thumbs up for the good
info you have here on this post. I might be coming again to your blog for extra soon.
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!!!
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.
I will try them with crunchy PB next time. Yum!
Looks and sounds wonderful! Wondering if I could use chunky style peanut butter (because that’s what I currently have on hand)? I know, I know……I could go to the store and get creamy peanut butter…..just wish I didn’t have to. Either way, I can’t wait to try this!
Yes, you can use chunky peanut butter!
