These Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bars make the perfect back to school treat!
It’s a pleasure partnering with Stevia In The Raw® to bring you these bars that are perfect for getting back in the kitchen now that school is back in session and the temperatures are starting to come down!
Stevia In The Raw® is a zero-calorie sweetener, perfect for any baking and cooking needs. It contains an extract from the sweet leaves of the stevia plant. Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag measures cup for cup with sugar so it can easily be used in any of your favorite recipes to reduce sugar and calories – no conversion from sugar to Stevia In The Raw® necessary.
When baking with Stevia In The Raw®, it is recommended to only replace half the sugar a recipe calls for in order to achieve the proper browning, rising, and caramelizing that only sugar can provide. More than 700 calories are saved for every cup of sugar that is swapped out for Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag.
You’ll start this bar recipe by mashing 1 medium ripe banana with one stick of softened butter.
Add Stevia In The Raw® and granulated sugar up next.
I added 1 tablespoon of honey to the mix as well.
One large egg up next.
A nice splash of pure vanilla extract.
A couple tablespoons of creamy peanut butter.
Dry ingredients up next!
Mini chocolate chips!
Stir until dough forms.
Transfer to baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown and baked through. Let cool completely, drizzle with melted chocolate and cut into squares.
Loved sharing these bars with the boys after school this week. Everyone loved them!
Be sure to store remaining bars in an airtight container. Enjoy!

These Raspberry Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes make the perfect breakfast or brunch!
It’s always a pleasure partnering with Eggland’s Best to bring you new recipes! Today, I am sharing a favorite pancake recipe that is such a great way to start your day! I love making a special breakfast (the most important meal of the day!) for the family to kick off the morning right!
My pancakes use Eggland’s Best Eggs, the only egg with better nutrition, taste and freshness.
We’ve used Eggland’s Best Eggs for years. I love knowing that Eggland’s Best eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and more than double the vitamin B12 than ordinary eggs. This is the perfect ingredient packed with superior nutrition for our pancake breakfast.
Eggland’s Best’s superior nutrition is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland’s Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.
To start, place your flour into a large mixing bowl.
Add the sugar up next.
Baking soda and salt.
Pour in your buttermilk.
A splash of vanilla.
Two large Eggland’s Best Eggs. Then stir to combine ingredients.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Stir in and gently mash the raspberries. Cook pancakes until batter is used up.
Garnish your plate of pancakes with raspberries and chocolate chips. Serve with pure maple syrup and enjoy!
