These are so yummy. I like them even better than peanut butter cookies. I would recommend taking them out before they look golden brown if you like them chewy because they get crispier while they cool. Thanks!
These are just as good as regular chocolate chip cookie bars, but with a good peanut butter flavor. They can also be made gluten-free very easily by substituting AP GF flour and adding 1 teas. xanthan gum. This will most definitely be stored in my recipe collection. Thanks, Parsley!
These bars did not turn out well for me. They were incredibly dry and had a sandy texture.
