Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

It’s Monday again.


Can we all just agree that Mondays are terrible?

Agreed? Agreed.

Mondays just seem to drag on and on. The time seems to go by so slowly. And on some very unfortunate Mondays, no amount of coffee can give me any sort of energy or enthusiasm.

Enter these cookie bars.

They make Monday just a little less dreary.

Makes one 9×13″ pan.

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1¾ cups sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 1½ cups semisweet chocolate chunks
  • ½ tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350℉.

Beat butter and sugar until creamy, then add peanut butter and mix well. Add in eggs, egg yolk, salt, and vanilla. Fold in flour until just combined. Fold in chocolate chunks. Spread in a buttered 9×13″ baking pan and bake 35-45 minutes until golden brown.
