Easy peanut butter blondies are made with the most basic ingredients: butter, brown sugar, flour and of course, peanut butter. But the result is the most amazing moist, fudgy and chewy bars that you can snack on all day. You can store them in refrigerator up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to 90 days.
I added sea salt here because salt enhances and even intensifies the taste of peanut butter and brown sugar. It’s definitely a must. I encourage you to use sea salt – it has more flavor, or at least tastes a lot saltier. If adding table salt, add a bit more than specified 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt.
And because we want these peanut butter blondies to be fudgy and thick, no baking soda is added here. The absence of baking soda is also the reason why they are not tall.
If you are a peanut butter lover – these are super easy to make and they store great! Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for one week. Or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
No mixer is required. All you need is the bowl and a fork to mix everything in.
