Peanut Butter Choco Chip Bars

It had been a while since I indulged in my favorite – peanut butter.  So I plucked a cookbook from the shelf and picked a recipe…

My adaptation…

1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2/3 cup peanut butter
2 XL eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
3/4 to 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Beat butter, sugar and peanut butter until fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.  Stir in the vanilla.

Combined flour, baking powder and salt; stir half into the batter.  Mix in the milk.  Stir in remaining half of flour.

Fold in half of the mini chocolate chips.

Spread into a parchment-lined 13×9-inch baking pan and smoothen top.  Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top.

Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.  Cool before cutting into bars.
