Peanut Butter Blondies (Brownies without chocolate )


Peanut butter is something that I do not relish ( I know weird isn’t it )  so when I saw Rachel Allen make it on her TV show I never ever thought of trying it ., but the other day I  saw some peanut butter in my ladder and thought of giving it a try. surprisingly it  turned out very well .It was absolutely effortless . I did not have crunchy peanut butter so I  added some roasted peanuts I had. Once out of the oven  they were divine on their own but with  ice-cream yummmm. My white chocolate had coconut so my blondies had a lovely flavors of peanuts and coconut.All my friends who tasted it enjoyed  and my darling son could not keep his hands off .

If this is the very first time you are baking believe me it will come out perfect .Do try without any hesitation  ,I assure you of great results .I am also an  ameture baker .
