DIRECTIONS

  • Place an oven rack in the middle of your oven and preheat the oven to 350.
  • Using a 20" length of aluminum foil, line a 13x9 baking pan. You should have a few inches left on each short end with which to lift the brownies out when they are done. Grease the foil well with shortening or butter.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the melted, cooled butter, and the brown sugar. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Whisk in the peanut butter until combined.
  • Add the flour mixture to the large bowl and stir just until combined. (don't overmix). Stir in the peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, and chopped peanuts.
  • Spread the batter in the prepared pan, smoothing the top. Bake 30 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the cooking time. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center - no more than a few crumbs should remain on the toothpick. They're probably done by now, but if the toothpick has batter sticking to it, bake for another 5 minutes.
  • Place the entire pan on a wire rack to cool for 1 hour. (otherwise they are too soft to remove).
  • Using the ends of the foil, carefully lift the blondies out of the pan and place on a cutting board. Cut into bars and remove from foil. Mine don't stick to the foil at all (I grease it liberally) so when I cut them, I don't cut into the foil and they remove easily. If yours are sticking, check the bottoms of your blondies for bits of foil. I haven't had that problem with this recipe, but I have with other, stickier, recipes, and nobody likes to bite into a piece of foil!
  • They should still be slightly warm and gooey after the 1 hour. Enjoy them that way, and store any leftovers tightly covered.
