I honestly can’t believe it has taken me this long to share this recipe with you. My husband actually looked at me wide-eyed and exclaimed “You haven’t posted this yet?!” So, my sincere apologies for holding out on you.
I think I’ve made these bars about a million times – okay, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. But I’ve definitely made them at least 10. And that’s a lot of times for such a successful food blogger like myself. I kid.
It’s hard to believe that the simple combination of peanut butter, eggs, honey, vanilla, and baking soda come together to produce what is best described as a cross between a brownie and fudge. I throw in a handful of chocolate chips for good measure, but you could totally leave them plain too. But really, when is a little chocolate ever a bad thing. It’s all about balance people.
You will read this recipe and think, really? Yes, really. I think these taste best when they are cold from the fridge. You definitely want to let them cool or they will crumble. Which also is delicious over some yogurt or ice cream, but I prefer them in bar form. I’ve also made this recipe with almond butter in place of peanut butter and it is also delightful, although I prefer this peanut butter version.
I will warn you they are highly addictive, so don’t be surprised if you turn your back and the whole pan is practically gone – not that that has ever happened in my house. 😉
