Made in one bowl, I love Peanut Butter Blondies because they’re cinch to make. You can whisk the ingredients by hand, no mixer required!

Peanut Butter Blondies are the perfect snack if you have someone that doesn’t like chocolate. I know right? Who doesn’t like chocolate?! I have actually 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!

  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, white or dark chocolate chips. I chose to leave my Peanut Butter Blondies plain. If you want more flavor and texture fill free to add up to a cup of your choice of 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 totally understand that and neither could I.) Scoop your blondie in a bowl and eat it with a spoon! Oh, my the way, it’s really good covered with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce!

    1. Yes 5th ingredient down is peanut butter. I’m not sure where you’re seeing ‘parchment paper spray’ I didn’t see that in the post.
