Peanut Butter Blondies

I got this recipe from a fellow WC Nestie, BakingBlonde. This was my first time making blondies and I think they turned out perfectly - they were sooo delicious!!

Ingredients

* 4-5 tbsp. butter
* 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used creamy)
* 1 cup brown sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 tsp. vanilla extract
* 1/4 tsp. salt
* 1 cup flour
* 1/2 tsp. baking powder
* 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used Nestle's combination bag of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Line an 8×8 pan with foil and lightly spray with PAM.
3. In a medium microwave safe mixing bowl, melt the butter for 20-30 seconds until almost/all melted. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
4. Stir the peanut butter into the butter until creamy and smooth.
5. Add the brown sugar to the butter/peanut butter and stir until smooth.
6. Add the egg and vanilla and stir to combine.
7. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the peanut butter mixture and stir just to combine.
8. Gently fold in chocolate chips and any other additions (chopped nuts, chopped Reese’s cups, Reese’s pieces, etc).
9. Pour into prepared pan and use a greased spatula to evenly spread mixture in pan and level the top.
10. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until set in the middle. Cool on rack before cutting.
