allow me to introduce you all to my sous chef, the fabulous & adorable schnitzi!
she is just as frilly as her sister (moiii), and absolutely loves to be in the kitchen. some of her favorite foods include peanut butter, brisket, and dog food roasted cauliflower. her latest adventure in the kitchen was helping out her only favorite sister while making peanut butter blondies, inspired by the lovely tina over at carrots n cake!
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup wheat bran
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth)
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup peanuts and chocolate or carob chips (mixed)
1. Preheat oven to 325*F. Spray 8-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients until smooth.
3. Spread batter evenly in prepared baking pan and bake for approximately 40-45 minutes until bars are cooked all the way through.
4. Let bars cool completely in pan before cutting.
the verdict? we all (me, momsy, popsicle, and the schnitzi) thought they were pretty delish! dense, moist, healthy – and full of peanut buttery delight. i guess the picture says it all, huh? great recipe, tina!
hope you’re all having a fabulous day!
p.s. do you have any fun sous chefs?!
