Need a peanut butter fix? These Peanut Butter Blondies are a must try! Chewy, gooey peanut butter bars with a touch of cinnamon. Oh, and they’re a breeze to bake!
I’ve been slacking in the baked goodies department lately. It’s been bread nonstop – sweets, not so much.
I decided to bake an old tried & true to get back into the swing of things. I found this recipe about 10 years ago and fell in LOVE. I’ve been making it ever since when I have a need for a peanut butter fix.
What makes this recipe interesting is the addition of cinnamon. You might raise an eyebrow at it first – peanut butter & cinnamon? Trust me – they taste wonderful together. I find myself pairing peanut butter & cinnamon often in my baked goodies – especially in breads & muffins.
These Peanut Butter Blondies are a nice & easy bake. You’ll have everything mixed up and ready for the oven in under 10 minutes.
I prefer creamy peanut butter – but if you’d like some texture go ahead and use the crunchy stuff.
These bars will bake for 20 -25 minutes. They don’t pull from the sides as much as a brownie would. Look for the edges to be golden brown and the center just about set. Still a little wiggle to it – but set.
Hope you enjoy!
