PB2 chocolate chip bar cookie

29 Aug

It’s Back to School for my kids this week!  This summer went by far too quickly.  I think it’s because we were waiting all summer long for summer weather to begin, and then once it did we had about 7 days of it before September 1st.

Call me old-fashioned, but I love having something freshly baked waiting on the counter for my kids when they get home from school.  Actually most times I just bring it with me in the car for afterschool pick up.  My youngest son’s first question when he sees me outside his classroom is usually “is there a snack in the car?”

I wanted to use PB2 in baking to see what kind of results I could get.  I really couldn’t be happier with this bar cookie.  Peanut butter and chocolate… what could be better?

A big thank you to my daughter Anna for snapping this great picture!

PB2 Chocolate Chip Bar Cookie

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup PB2 powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 ounces chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 8 inch square pan with non-stick spray.

Combine melted butter and brown sugar in a mixer.  Beat well.  Add vanilla and egg. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix well.  Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.  Spread batter into pan.  Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Using Weight Watchers Recipe Builder, if you made 16 servings they would be 5 pts+ each.  12 servings would be 7 pts+ each.  And if you are like me and cut it into 9 servings, they are 9 pts+ each.

      That’s how I ended up with my alternate serving sizes. I had every intention of cutting the pan into 16 pieces!

    I love this recipe! I made it lower and calories and fat by leaving out the nuts and the chocolate chips. I also use 1/2 cup of splenda brown sugar instead of the regular brown sugar. I cut an 8 inch pan into six pieces each is 200 calories.
