Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

These moist peanut butter flavored bars are so delicious, who can resist peanut butter and chocolate anyway? If you don't want to use sucanat, which is a less refined sugar, brown sugar would work perfectly as an equal substitute. -Sarah

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sucanat
1 egg
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 cup chocolate chips
  • With a mixer blend butter and sucanat, add egg and peanut butter. 
  • Mix in flour, oats, baking soda and salt. Stir in half of chocolate chips.
  • Press mixture into a greased 8x8 pan. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake at 350 degrees about 18 minutes, just till edges are lightly browned, careful not to over bake.
