Peanut Butter Swirl Bars- Recipes My Mom Gave Me

When I was little, my mom was a stay at home mom.  She did work, but, it was once my younger sister was in middle school/high school.

While she was a stay at home mom,  my mom baked nearly every weekday.  Yes, no exaggeration.  It was pretty awesome. We would always have something for dessert after dinner or after school.

These bars were part of the regular dessert rotation.  No wonder! They are easy, delicious and can be made with just a few simple pantry ingredients. 

Ingredients Needed

  • Flour + Baking powder + Salt
  • Butter
  • Peanut butter
  • Sugars: both white & brown
  • Eggs 
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate chips

Recipe Notes:

Peanut Butter

I recommend using a "regular" peanut butter as opposed to a natural version. The natural version will work, but, does have a higher oil content.  If you do use it, you may want to add a tablespoon or two extra of flour, to absorb the extra oil.


Don't over bake your bars.  They will appear soft at first, but, will firm up as they cool. As long as the edges are lightly brown, they are OK. 


Keep any leftover bars in a covered container. No need to refrigerate, unless it's really hot/humid in your area.
