I’m Baaaackkkk……

Hi everyone, 
     It’s been fooorrrevvverrr, I know, but life got in the way along with this whole, “Why the hell am I doing this? No one gives a shit… I’m broke and can’t afford the damn ingredients for this stupid recipe” You know LIFE. 
     Anyways, I got over that and while I’m still broke, I found a way to scrounge together the ingredients for this recipe. I will admit right now that I didn’t create it, I just followed another blogger, Gal on a Mission, I found on pintrest and viola something happened in the kitchen. Honestly, I wanted to make something today and didn’t have the brain capacity to think of something on my own or follow a super complicated anything.

Soooo, here is my (borrowed) Peanut Butter Blondie recipe:

Let’s start with the ingredients:
 Pre-heated 350 degree oven
 1 egg ( I put 2 in the pic, cuz it looked cool)
 1 stick of melted unsalted butter (again 2 for cool points)
 1 cup of unbleached all purpose flour
 1/2 cup of light brown sugar (the white sugar was a mistake on my part, but it looks cool)
 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
 1/2 cup of all natural peanut butter

  •  (have you looked at the ingredients in “regular” peanut butter? molasses? hydrogenated oil? monoglycerides? sugar? WHHHHHYYYYY????…seriously for about the same price as walmart brand I got peanut butter that had only 2 ingredients…peanuts and salt)

Step 1: 

Combine Light Brown Sugar and

 melted butter in a bowl…

  and mix…

 Step 2:
     Add the 1 egg

 and 1 tsp. of Vanilla extract stir to combine some more…

Step 3:
  Now, add your 1/2 cup of  natural peanut butter (it doesn’t have to be organic or local or anything like that…just check the ingredients and make sure it’s JUST peanuts and salt)



 Step 4:
      Add the 1/4 tsp. of Kosher salt (use any salt you have available in your home, I just personally prefer kosher)

 stir in and add flour. I did it in 2 parts, adding half stirring it in  and then adding the rest

Kinda like this…

The end result should look like this….

 Step 5:
    Grease and line either an 8×8 brownie pan or this bad boy I borrowed from my mother (her mini loaf pan). Yep, individual blondies…just let that sink in….

As evenly as possible divide your batter into the 6 spots, if your using a normal pan just pour it in and spread it around as evenly as you can get it.

Step 6:
   Put in a 350 degree oven
   Bake for about 15-20 min for the loaf pan. The brownie pan is    about 20-25min.
   Remove from oven, let cool, remove from pan and…

 ENJOY this peanut butter goodness*..

 *Just to let everyone know my blondies did not come out remotely like the original recipe I borrowed from, for some reason they were drier and more cookie like than brownieish (is that a word? It is now) it might have something to do with the humidity of my home. They still tasted good though and that is ALL that matters…hmmm…maybe I’ll just call them cookie bars…
