Peanut Butter Blondie

How can you make a blonde even better? Add peanut butter! LOL.

Okay, I'll admit it, I have food crush on PIday. Her blog is so inspiring. I know, my food will never look as good as hers. But a girl can try. If nothing else it tastes good.

Peanut Butter Blondies with White Chocolate and Pecans
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted pecans [okay, okay, I didn't toast them]
1/2 cup chocolate chips*
1/2 cup coarsely chopped white chocolate [I didn't have any so I just skipped it]

Preheat oven to 325F.
Grease and lightly flour and 8 inch square baking pan.[my square pan was dirty so I used a pie pan]
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter with the peanut butter and the sugars until smoothm about 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat well. Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Stir in the pecans, chocolate chips and the white chocolate, reserving 2 TBSP of each.
Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Sprinkle the reserved pecans, chips and white chocolate evenly over the top and, using a spatula, gently press into the batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean with moist crumbs attached.
Do not overbake. Allow to cool to room temperature before cutting and serving.


  1. Yum, looks delish! I'll have to add this to my wish list, because as far as peanut butter and my hubby goes, "it completes him". :)~

  2. That looks super good. I have been wanting to make some blondies for a while now.

  3. Suddenly I'm thirsty for an ice cold glass of milk! :)
