3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Bars

It's mid-week, ready for the weekend yet?

I am...actually I'm looking forward to Friday. I am hosting our first Friday Night Supper Club at my house. Three other girlfriends and I will be having a "girls night" in, all centered around a themed dinner. Should be tons of fun!

Of course I'll report all the details...you won't miss out.

Last night was my yummy Bleu Cheese & Mushroom Turkey Burgers on the grill. If you haven't made these yet, you need to. Quite possibly one of the best burgers around. Add to that a side of cottage cheese and a salad, made this meal complete!

So, the other night we had a friend over for dinner and I wanted something sweet for after, but after scanning our cupboards (which are getting bare!) I honestly didn't see anything I could make. But then it dawned on me. When in a pinch, I usually throw together my flourless pb & chocolate chip cookies.

Well, no chocolate chips.

So, I improvised and made these 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Bars. My original recipe even calls for baking soda, but I didn't even add that (forgot!) and they still turned out great! They are ooey, gooey, good.


3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Bars
1 c. all natural, creamy peanut butter
1 egg
3/4 c. brown sugar

Mix all ingredients together and spread in a greased 8x8 baking dish (or a heart shaped pan like me!). Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 min. Let edges get brown, as the middle will need a little extra baking time, insert toothpick to make sure middle is done. Let cool before cutting into bars.


These are soft, chewy and gooey! The perfect bar in my opinion.


Oh, lastly I wanted to thank Lori for giving me the Sunshine Award! Lori nominated me as one of her 12 favorite bloggers that bring sunshine to her day. Ah...how nice.
