Chewy Peanut Butter Bars

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies For some odd reason my oldest daughter is on a peanut butter kick.

This week alone she has experimented with a fried peanut butter sandwich (like a grilled cheese but with peanut butter) and had a bowl of mini-wheats with milk, a banana and a huge glob of peanut butter on top.

These bars are for her, gooey rich and full of peanut  butter!

Chewy Peanut Butter Bars


1 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine

Press into a greased 9 X 13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. The crust should be lightly browned.

Mix together:

2 eggs
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon salt

Fold in:

1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips (semi- sweet)

Pour over the baked crust and return to the oven for another 15 – 20 minutes or until golden.

Cut these into small pieces (about 3 dozen) because they are very rich!

But ohh soo good!
