Peanut Buttery M&M Cookie Bars


My first Time Well Spent recipe!!! Peanut Buttery M&M Cookie Bars. Scrumptious and SO easy. LESS than ten ingredients!

If you know me, you know I have an uncontrollable sweet tooth.

I love to cook! Especially bake!! [& BATTER is my favorite thing!]

So… if/when you’re looking for an EXTRA sweet, peanut buttery-gooey-chocolatey treat then here is the PERFECT recipe for you. Simple and oh so tasty!

Watch my one-minute (one-hand videoing on my phone, one-hand mixin') peanut buttery M&M cookie bar tutorial to see the deliciousness happen!!!

Here’s what you need from your cupboard/fridge/wherever you keep your chocolate:

½ cup of peanut butter [or more, overload it with PB. Best part, right?]

1 cup of all-purpose flour

1 large egg

½ cup of butter, [then melt it]

1 cup of light brown sugar

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

1/8-teaspoon baking powder

¾ cup of M&M's baking bits [or your favorite kind]

¾ cup of Reese's peanut butter chips

I like to make baking easy and fun, so there aren’t very many specifics (besides the ingredients) to making my peanut buttery M&M cookie bars. I’m sure they would still be very tasty if you just threw all of the ingredients into a bowl. So, use your own judgment with the help of my steps and I’m sure your peanut buttery M&M cookie bars will turn out FABULOUS!

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350

  2. Melt the butter and dump the melted butter into your mixing bowl.

  3. When the butter is cooled a bit, add your egg, vanilla extract & brown sugar.

  4. Mix these ingredients together for a few seconds and then add the peanut butter.

  5. Stir in the peanut butter until the batter is all pretty smooth!

  6. Add in the flour and baking powder and stir it until it looks smooth to you.

  7. Then, stir in the goodies aka the M&M’s and Reese’s peanut butter chips!

  8. Grease your 11x7 pan, pour in your batter, and stick it in the oven for 25 minutes [I like mine REALLY gooey ("doughy") & they were still quite gooey at 25 minutes, SO if you like your sweet treats a little more “well-done” than I would suggest keeping them in the oven for another 5 minutes!]

  • 9x13 pan, bake 15 minutes for gooey and 20 for well done

***MOST IMPORTANTLY: lick the bowl clean!!!

[I always accidentally don’t put all the batter in the pan because the more batter left to lick, the better, right?]

Ahh, good food, good mood. Enjoy!

And... Stay Tuned!
