What are Blondies?
Blondies are typically brownies without chocolate. They’re soft and a bit fudgy like a brownie, but they’re traditionally flavored with vanilla and brown sugar instead.
For this recipe I broke the blondie law and added chocolate and peanut butter – the best of both worlds!

You can indeed. Prep the cookie dough the day before, and then just press into the baking dish when ready to bake. Makes dessert quick and easy!

Top Tips for Peanut Butter Blondies
- To make more gooey, under-bake the blondies just a tad, if you aren’t into the gooey, just bake longer. You may want to cover the dish for part of the baking time to keep the tops from getting too brown.
- The recipe can be doubled and baked in a 9×13-inch baking pan. Add 5-10 minutes to bake time.
