These Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bars make the perfect back to school treat!

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bars

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!

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bars

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.

Breakfast and Brunch

These Raspberry Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes make the perfect breakfast or brunch!
Raspberry Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes

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!

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes

My pancakes use Eggland’s Best Eggs, the only egg with better nutrition, taste and freshness.

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes

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.

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes

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.

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes

To start, place your flour into a large mixing bowl.
