I love Peanut Butter Blondies made in one bowl because they’re a cinch. You can whisk the ingredients by hand; no mixer is required!

Peanut Butter Blondies are the perfect snack if you have someone that doesn’t like chocolate. (Even though I think these peanut butter brownies are killer!!) I know, right? Who doesn’t like chocolate?! I have come across people that don’t. My parents are not big fans of chocolate. I usually make lemon desserts or blueberry desserts for them.

I have a lot of dessert recipes with peanut butter on However, I only have one savory recipe that I can think of, and it’s the peanut butter dipping sauce, which is ah-mazing! You should totally make that one!

Tips for making Peanut Butter Blondies

  1. First, what’s the difference between brownies and blondies? Brownies have cocoa in them. Blondies do not. Sometimes blondies are called ‘blond brownies’.
  2. As well, this recipe is made in one bowl, without a mixer.
  3. Additionally, this makes the perfect amount, so you don’t have to worry about eating them for days, not that that would be a bad thing!
  4. Typically, blondies have mix-ins such as walnuts, pecans, and white or dark chocolate chips. I chose to leave my Peanut Butter Blondies plain. If you want more flavor and texture, feel free to add up to a cup of your choice to mix in.
  5. As hard as it will be, wait until the blondies are cool before cutting. Otherwise, you risk them falling apart. If, however, you can’t wait (I understand that, and neither could I.) Scoop your blondie in a bowl and eat it with a spoon! Oh, by the way, it’s really good, covered with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce!
