- Cream butter and peanut butter. Add 1/2 cup brown sugar gradually, beating until fluffy. Add 1 cup flour half at a time, beating until well mixed.
- Press into a greased 9x9 pan. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Beat eggs, vanilla, and 1 cup brown sugar until creamy. Add flour and baking powder, beat until well blended. Stir in coconut and chocolate chips.
- Spread over hot crust, return to oven and bake 30 minutes.
This is a decent tasting cookie bar, however, since it is called a "peanut butter bar" one would expect a more peanut butter flavor. It is interesting how the center is full of gooey chocolate goodness, but the peanut butter is over powered by the chocolate.
