Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Hi Everyone,

Today I have for you a delicious, easy recipe that only takes about 18 minutes to bake, which is perfect for the summer heat.  It is my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars.  Every Sunday I bake cookies, bread or some form of baked goods, so today I changed up my traditional recipe and made cookie bars.  Yum!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

These bars are moist, and have the perfect peanut butter taste. Since they are so sweet and peanut buttery, I cut the bars into 36 slices. Which is simply the perfect bite of sweetness. The only problem is just eating one.

I love simple recipes like this and it beats having the oven on for over an hour to make a batch of cookies. I froze my bars in freezer bags for easy grabbing.

I hope you have a fantastic day!
