Peanut Butter Blondies

Today we’re sharing a recipe for peanut butter blondies.  This blondie recipe is the perfect combination of a peanut butter cookie and a blondie.  If you love both of these sweet treats then you are sure to love peanut butter blondies too!  

All about Peanut Butter Blondies

Sometimes you just can’t get enough peanut butter.  You have it on toast or make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches but you still keep craving it.  You then find yourself getting spoonfuls of peanut butter from the jar.  If this sounds like you, and you’re a peanut butter lover too, this is the cookie bar for you!   

The blondie is an all-time great base recipe and you can pretty much add anything to make it your own.  We have tried so many different additions and they have been nothing but delicious.  But this peanut butter blondie is down right amazing, you get all the rich and fudgy flavors of the blondie with a hint of a peanut butter cookie.  

The best way to make this recipe is to start off with melted butter.  We’ve tried using softened butter before, but it does not give it the fudgy, rich center.  

In a large bowl or a mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients and then add in the dry ingredients.  You can either use parchment paper, aluminum foil or a baking dish sprayed with cooking oil.  You then will add in the blondie batter and bake for about 20-25 minutes.  You will need to let the blondies completely cool before slicing.

The Journey Begins

Thank you for joining us as we embark on this journey of sharing with you what we love!  We are a family of 3, soon to be a family of 4 who live on a 1/4 acre in an urban setting of the Willamette Valley of Oregon.  We strive to be as self-sufficient as we possibly can by growing as much of our own food we can, preparing homemade meals and recipes from scratch, making or building our own instead of buying from a store (DIY), and living as frugal as we possibly can.  We accomplish all of this, while working to become a debt free household on a single income and doing what we can to earn extra money by way of handmade businesses and selling plant starts.  Our ultimate goal is to save enough money so that we can relocate to the Big Island of Hawaii and build our dream home.  We would like to share what has been successful for us so that others like yourself may prosper and live your lives to the fullest.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
