Peanutty Chocolate Chip Bars

Here is a super easy, and even better tasting brownie/cookie type bar.  The recipe is from the book Chicken Soup for the Soul – Recipes for Busy Moms.


1 cup sugar

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325 Degrees and coat an 8×8 pan with cooking spray.  In medium bowl,  combine the sugar, peanut butter, egg and vanilla.  (I used my kitchen aide – love this kitchen appliance)  Add the chocolate chips and mix well.  Press mixture evenly into the baking pan.  Bake for 25 -30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Allow to cool then cut into bars and serve.

Here is a photo after my son already helped himself to 2 bars.  I guess the verdict is that they are pretty good!

      It actually called for mini M&Ms in the recipe but I did not have them so I added the Chocolate chips. Let me know what you think.
