mmmm... Peanut Butter

So, since I am trying to lose some baby weight I whipped up some delicious peanut butter cookie bars this week.


The great thing about these bars is that they are just peanut butter, honey, eggs, and baking soda (with a few chocolate chips thrown on top for good measure). I found the recipe when I was considering making these gluten-free brownies from Elana's Pantry (which I have made before and LOVE... thank you SIL) and noticed that her recipe had been inspired by this Peanut Butter Bar recipe from the Celiac Chicks. I am not gluten-free, but I love the idea of indulging in treats that do not contain white flour and sugar. Plus, I love peanut butter. I really do.

These definitely passed the family taste-test, even my peanut butter loving Grammy thought they were pretty yummy. And seriously, how can you go wrong with a peanut butter - honey combo?? I highly recommend putting the batter in the recommended 9x13 pan... even though it looks like you can squeeze it into a smaller one. These cookies expand big time! But, caution... these are not diet food :)


  1. Are you going to share the recipe?

  2. Yes!! I would love this recipe as I have a fondness for peanut butter. I think I will pin this post to my recipes. :-)
