Peanut Butter Cookie Bars are soft and melt-in-the-mouth peanut butter cookie bars filled with chocolate chips!
What's not to love about these peanut butter cookie bars?
They are rich and melt-in-the-mouth, packed full of chocolate chips and are soft with a chewy outside like any food cookie bar!
Now, like all my peanut butter recipes, I use an all natural peanut butter. I've explained that I prefer the taste and the knowledge that the peanut butter is healthy without all the additives and added sugar. However, if you prefer regular peanut butter, you can use this in these bars without any changes.
If you do use regular peanut butter and feel these may end up being too sweet for you, you could reduce the brown sugar by ¼ cup.
I have been in a peanut butter mood lately. I've even made these cookie bars and my Peanut Butter Marshmallow Cookie Bars three times in the past two weeks!
The cravings are real so you know these must be good!
