Rich Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Bars

I just tried these today, and they were super easy. We really liked them! Thought I'd share this recipe with those of you I know who are looking for healthier dessert alternatives. While this recipe has a lot of fat in it, they are all natural fats and there is no refined sugar or salt, and it is made with whole grain. Enjoy!

Rich Peanut Butter Bars:

2/3 c all-natural creamy peanut butter
1/2 c butter
1 1/2 c sucanat

Melt and mix these 3 ingredients together over low temperature on stove top. Don't get the mixture too hot because you are going to add eggs next.

Next, add into that mixture:

2 eggs
1 1/4 c whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c cocoa (optional - use only if you want to make this into a brownie recipe)

For bars, press into a 9 x 13 inch pan; for brownies, press into a square baker.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. IMPORTANT! Let it cool completely before you cut it or eat it. It will crumble if you mess with it when it is warm.
