Oatmeal-Peanut Butter Blondies
Submitted by Oral Slither
A blondie is like a brownie without chocolate. These bars are soft, slightly chewy, with a crisper crust, and moderate peanut butter flavor. This recipe was adapted from the Brownies and Blondies cookbook. I got rid of a few unnecessary ingredients, and streamlined the process a bit more.
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 8 tbs (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup peanut butter (either creamy or chunky)
- 3 tbs milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup rolled oats
Gather your ingredients.
Preheat your oven to 350°. Melt the stick of butter and let cool for a couple minutes. Don't throw the butter wrapper away! Use it to grease a 9-inch pan.
Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the butter and sugars. Add the peanut butter and beat thoroughly. Add the milk, eggs, and vanilla.
Stir in the oatmeal, then the flour mixture. When you add the flour, stir only until the flour is mixed in. Stirring too much will make the blondies tough.
Stop cooking and play tag with me, damnit!
Pour the batter into the pan, and smooth the top with a spoon. Bake for 30 minutes. These are great piping hot from the oven.
