Oh, you didn't know? I'm a lady who lunches now. And today I lunched in Park Slope with Megan, Victoria and the wee baby Willem. I made these peanut butter chocolate chip bars because, please, I have manners. (Also, this recipe is in contention for the Cookie for Kids' Cancer Bake Sale at the Brooklyn Flea on May 7!)
I adapted this recipe from Bake at 350 and I cut about 1/4 cup of sugar, and they were still sweet without being, you know, toooo cavity inducing.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter
1/2 cup organic sugar (the refined white stuff freaks me out)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup garbanzo flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I don't like things toooo chippy)
Mix together the butter and peanut butter, then add the sugars. Blend in the eggs and vanilla, then mix in the dry ingredients. Spread into an 8x8 glass pan and bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes. Cut up. Place in adorable printed bags. Lavish upon friends. Graciously accept praise.
