peanut butter blondies

I'm a little late on this whole National Peanut Butter day thing, but c'est la vie. I made these yesterday, which was the holiday dedicated to the amazingness we call… Peanut butter. So I should get a pass or something. 


You guys! I passed my geography exam the other day! BOOM!

I spent hours upon countless, excruciatingly boring hours, in my fluffy bed {I'm trying to make this sound bad.}, studying for this thing. 

My work paid off and I got a 90! Not to brag or anything… ;)

When I finished the exam, I celebrated by going into the kitchen, blasting Mumford & Sons, dancing like a loony lunatic aaaaaaaalmost blasting the speakers, singing all pitchy with reckless abandon, and stuffing my face with more dark chocolate M&M's than I thought humanly possible. 

All at the same time, while ALSO putting away the dishes. 

I've got mad kills, I tell you.

Seriously though, M&M's weren't gonna cut it. You see, I've cut down on carbs and sugar this week TREMENDOUSLY… And I've actually lost a pound or two. Let's be real here… How long did you think that would last? Not long. 

I needed something chewy. And peanut buttery. And I needed said peanut buttery chewy thing faster than the speed of light. Enough of this healthy stuff. I'll take a peanut butter blondie or five please thankyouverymuch. 

These were amazing and umm… HOLY ADDICTING! I ate more than my fair share, that is for sure…

Winner, winner, peanut butter blondies for dinner!

The texture and flavor is pretty much identical to your typical peanut butter cookie… They're a little crumbly, but it's a good crumbly and they're still able to be picked up and keep their shape.

I thought about adding chocolate chips in there, but instead decided to just bask in all their chewy gloriousness. 

In lu of passing my semester exam, I bring to you… peanut butter blondies. *applause*
