I’ve made these peanut butter and chocolate chip bars a couple of weeks ago, just before we left to visit my mother in low. She has a sweet tooth, just like me, and I knew these bars would be perfect to nibble on at her house.

They are soft and tender, a little chewy, somewhere in the middle between blondies and cake bars.

The brown sugar adds not only flavor but moisture as well while the vanilla yogurt keeps these bars moist longer. You could use plain yogurt and if you do so, you may wanna add about a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Peanut butter and chocolate chips bars recipe


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


  1. Heat the oven to 350F. Line a 13X9" baking with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, with the paddle attachment on, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula, if needed.
  4. Beat in the vanilla yogurt followed by the flour and baking powder.
  5. Turn the mixer off, and, with a spatula, fold in both the peanut butter chips and the chocolate chips.
  6. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before cutting into bars.

    What lovely thick squares of peanut buttery, chocolatey deliciousness, Roxana! I love a chewy bar and yours look just about perfect!

  2. says

    YES PLEASE!!!! Mmmmm! Love the idea of yogurt in them, bet that makes them even more moist and cakey! Cant wait to give this a try. As of next week I am only allowing myself one sweet a day to focus on my nutrition for my upcoming races…..I think a giant slab of this will be a few days worth!

  3. says

    Roxana, I wish I were eating a pan of these bars for breakfast! I love how you describe them as inbetween blondies and cake bars. I can see how soft and chewy they are just by looking at your gorgeous photos!

  4. says

    It’s a good thing you can’t get fat just from looking at food, because I’m pretty sure I’d have gained 5 lbs just from looking at all those delicious photos! Love the idea of using vanilla yogurt for both flavour and moisture. So smart!

  5. says

    Hmmm, I think I actually have PB Chips in the pantry. Might have to whip up a batch of these later! As far as chocolate and peanut butter go, I love that combo pretty much any way I can get it, but one of my faves is the peanut butter ball recipe I make.

  6. says

    Hi Roxana! Wow, these bars sound and LOOK fantastic and beautiful photos! Thanks so much for sharing at Best of the Weekend and pinning – have a happy Saturday and a wonderful weekend!

  7. says

    One of my pet peeves is when recipes don’t enough chocolate chips. I think you pretty much got it covered with 3 cups 😉 Can’t wait to try these.

  8. spice says

    Wonder full, so going to bake on Saturday, can ii add 1 cup of peanut butter chips and 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips.

    • says

      The recipe calls for 3 cups of chips (half peanut butter chips and half chocolate chips) If you’re using only 1 1/2 cups the bars might turn out different

  9. says

    Wow is all I can say about these yummy bars … I have my 3rd batch in the oven and I only found this recipe here a few weeks ago. I attend a Tuesday night trivia event every week and I’ve become the “baker” of the group, I always bring in a cake for our players birthdays and lately when we have no event to celebrate, I just bring a goodie. These have been requested for the 3rd time now, they are totally a hit and so easy to bake. I love that they are loaded with chips, but I’ve begun to add half a bag of caramel bits as well, they add an extra unexpected bit of flavor. Thank you so much for sharing this bar recipe … they are a go to and one that my daughter has now requested that I write in to her special recipe book.

      Hi Tania,

      You just made my evening! Thank you so much for the sweet words. So happy to hear your friends enjoy these bars! I really appreciate the feedback.

    These look really good but Im a little confused with the recipe. You say there is 3 cups of peanut butter in them but there is no peanut butter listed in the ingredients, only one and a half cups of peanut butter chips and no indication of peanut butter in the directions.

    • says

      Hi Beth,

      I apologize for the confusion. It’s peanut butter chips and chocolate chips, and yes, combined that’s 3 cups of chips. Half of them are peanut butter, the other half are chocolate.
      There’s no actual peanut butter in the recipe, that’s why is not listed. Just the chips.
