Peanut Butter Bars & Brownies
Do you want something sweet, yet on the healthy side; or sweet and really decadent? Well, I have got you covered with these recipes. I couldn’t believe the variation in all of these recipes for peanut butter bars, and peanut butter brownies!
Some of the recipes would be perfect for kids to make as they contain just a few ingredients, and do not require any baking. Some are great to pack into a lunch box (assuming you are okay to take peanut products into school/work). And some are great for serving at parties, or giving as homemade gifts.
Peanut butter is such versatile ingredient in recipes – it’s not just for making PB&J sandwiches! I put out the call to my blogging tribe and received a whopping 120+ recipes that use peanut butter! They ranged from sauces, dips, cakes, energy balls & bites, cookies, and other sweet treats, through to savory dishes too. Plus of course these peanut butter bars and brownie recipes that I am sharing with you today.
With so many recipes I decided to split the list and make a series of peanut butter recipes for you. Make sure you get the updates so that you don’t miss out! ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Peanut allergies are very real, and can be very scary too. If you suffer from such an allergy, or know someone who does, then of course these peanut butter cookie recipes won’t be for you. However, many of the recipes I’ve included can substitute the peanut butter for other nut butters (assuming you do not have an allergic reaction to those).
There are many more nut butters on the market these days including: hazelnut, almond, cashew, and macadamia nut butters. I’ve also seen pecan, pistachio and brazil nut butters (but I’ve not tried out the latter three).
If you know someone with a nut allergy, always check with them what nuts they can have, never assume – it’s always better to be safe, than sorry.
As with all of my roundups, there are ideas from my blog* as well as from lots of fab blogs from around the world. I have made all of links to these peanut butter bars and brownies recipes open in a new window so that you don’t lose your place on the list. The list corresponds with the photo above – so that you can get an idea what the finished dish should look like. Enjoy!
*no recipes from me this time! To be rectified as soon as possible!
