Rich Peanut Butter Bars

This little gem reminded me of the peanut butter cookies my mom made when I was little.  Back in the day, we used Crisco!  (I know!)  Today, we use real butter and enjoy the best of ingredients.  You might try coconut oil sometime as a nutritious twist!  Peanut butter bars are simple and delicious!


  • 1/2 cup organic peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup organic butter
  • 1 1/2 cup Sucanat (I reduce this to 1 1/4 cup)
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 1 cup freshly milled hard white wheat or pastry wheat flour or gluten free flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp.baking powder aluminum free
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt (use less if your butter has salt)
  • 1 tsp.vanilla


  1. Melt butter and peanut butter together. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well blended.
  2. Press into a greased 9″x13″pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
  3. Cool and cut into squares.
  4. 1/2 cup of cocoa may be added for an extra rich brownie.
