CHOCOLATE CHIP PEANUT BUTTER BARS


~ Sunset Magazine, October 2006

1/2 c. butter
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 c. smooth peanut butter
1/2 t. vanilla
1/4 c. flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/4 c. wheat germ
1 c. rolled oats
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
6 oz. (1 c.) semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter with sugars until smooth. Beat in egg, peanut butter, and vanilla until well-blended.

In another bowl, whisk together flours, wheat germ, oats, baking soda, and salt; stir or beat into butter mixture until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.

Spread dough evenly in a buttered 8-inch square baking pan. Bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Cool completely.

Notes: I've subbed almond butter for peanut butter a few times. It doesn't have a strong almond flavor, but it's still good.
