Peanut butter & chocolate chip cookie bars

When I need something comforting, I make these peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie bars. They are soft, moist and so satisfying. And since I switched to natural & no sugar & no fat added peanut butter, it also feels like they are a healthy snack :).

And believe me when I say that these yummy bars take less than a half an hour to make! Isn’t it funny, how a half an hour of baking seems to go by really fast, while a half an hour of folding laundry feels like an eternity.. (If you don’t feel the same,and you love folding laundry, good for you! ).

    You didn’t mention when to add in the peanut butter. I’m assuming it’s before you add in the chocolate chips?
