Peanut Butter Blueberry Bars

While browsing through the StarAdvertiser online, I came across this recipe that looked delicious (peanut butter is my weakness!) and easy to make. Since I had all of the ingredients on-hand, I decided to make it on the spur of the moment. The recipe was originally published by the New York Times (click here for the original recipe post).





In a large bowl, mix together one stick of unsalted butter, one cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of brown sugar (packed), 1/2 cup granulated sugar.



Add to the mixture one large egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder



Press 2/3 of the dough into a 8 x 8 baking pan lined with parchment paper.


Mix together 10 ounces of frozen fruit (I used frozen blueberries) with 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Spread evenly on the dough.



Crumble the remaining dough into large chunks and spread evenly over the blueberries.



Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Let cool before slicing. 



Try it with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!

Open-Faced Apple Sandwiches


In an effort to try and get my kids to eat "healthier" snacks, and to use up apples that have been sitting in the fridge for way too long, I made Open-Faced Apple Sandwiches.

They are so easy and so versatile!

Simply core apples, cut them into slices, spread on some peanut butter, and sprinkle with toppings!
I added granola from Chef Michelle Karr-Ueoka, of MW Restaurant, as well as chocolate chips.

You can add nuts, coconut flakes, chia, and more!

Quick and yummy!
