This sinful recipe was shared with us by the lovely authors of Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero, in honor of the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. I have been told that it is a sure-fire sell-out at bake sales, and perhaps you could even get some extra chores in payment from your family for whipping up a batch of these sweet gems.
Since the recipe was so simple (as Isa states, “they’re easy enough for the beginner bake saler”), and used ingredients I have on hand everyday, I gave these Peanut Butter Blondies a whirl for a potluck party I attended a couple of weeks ago.
I did have some performance issues since I live at high altitude (6500 ft). The results should be spot on for most people, but If you live at high altitude then you know cookies and cookie bars can be tricky. I recommend reducing the oil in the recipe just a bit and/or increasing the flour a little. Fortunately, they taste insanely good no matter what – so I simply cut them into fudge-sized bites to keep them cohesive, and the entire batch was gone (crumbs and all) just fifteen minutes after I arrived at the party!
