Peanut Butter and Jam Blondie Bars

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed (option to use all light brown sugar)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I used Ballard Extracts Vanilla Extract)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons Jamnation Midnight in Pearis Jam (or your jam of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon honey roasted peanuts, chopped


1 Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Line an 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. Set aside.

2 In the bowl of your stand mixer, affixed with the paddle attachment, add the melted butter, peanut butter, light and dark brown sugars. Mix on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the eggs to the mixture, one at a time, mixing the first egg in completely before adding the second egg. Add the vanilla extract and nutmeg to the batter. Mix until incorporated.

3 Change the mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until barely combined. Remove the mixing bowl from the mixer and use a rubber scraper to ensure all ingredients are well incorporated.

4 Pour mixture into prepared baking pan. Dollop the jam onto the top of the peanut butter mixture. Sprinkle the chopped peanuts on top, evenly.

5 Bake in 350-degree oven for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out without raw batter on it. The blondies may not seem done, but they will set once they have fully rested. Do not over bake. Remove blondies from the oven and let set on the counter.

6 Cut blondies into desired sized squares once blondies have completely cooled and set.
