This recipe was derived from a recipe I hold close to my heart.
Growing up, my mom used to make a four-ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe that came from my friend Aimée. She gave it to my mom and me when we were very young kids.
I vaguely remember my mom saying that Aimée said it was originally from Sesame Street. Really!
My mom made the cookie recipe practically weekly. No exaggeration.
For friends, for family, for a potluck, for someone who needed cheering up, for someone who was celebrating something, and the list goes on. There was always a reason to be whipping up the delicious recipe.
Like the cookies, these super decadent and delicious Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars are easy to make. In fact, even easier because it’s one big bar that’s just cut into squares when it’s done.
Simply by using a baking dish instead of a cookie sheet, I’ve turned the incredible peanut butter cookie recipe into a crazy, yummy bar recipe.
Peanut butter is packed with protein, you know. It’s good to keep that healthy thought in mind if you become addicted to these. 😉
I love that these don’t contain any flour . . . because they have become my gluten-free son’s favorite dessert! I’m not sure that anyone would ever not love these Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars.
I hope I’ve inspired a baking project for you!
Enjoy every last bite of these delectable Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars!

These Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars are so easy to make and incredibly delicious to eat! Four ingredients and about thirty minutes is all you need!
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups creamy, salted peanut butter
- 2 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, use a large fork to combine the egg whites with the sugar. Then blend in the peanut butter and 2 cups of the chocolate chips. Use a small, flat-bottomed spatula to smooth out the top.
Place in the preheated 350° F oven and bake just until the batter looks dry in the center and it's solid, about 25 minutes.
Remove the baking dish from the oven and evenly sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips on the top. Return the dish to the oven for 2 minutes, then evenly spread the melted chocolate chips over the surface.
Place the baking dish on a cooling rack and let it cool for at least 2 hours. Then cut into approximately 24 evenly sized bars.
