Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

If you have to quickly satisfy a peanut butter and chocolate craving, these bars are the way to do it. The bars are very thick and cakey. This filling treat tastes better when completely cooled.

1 cup Wheat Flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch Salt
1 cup Peanut Butter
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1/2 cup Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup Milk Chocolate Chips 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8" x 8" baking dish with cooking spray.
Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Stir with a fork.
In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, sugar, and egg. Stir until creamy. Add the milk and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Add the flour mixture, stirring until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Pour the dough into the baking pan and pat the top to smooth. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until slightly puffy and very lightly browned at the edges. Remove and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Store at room temperature, tightly covered with foil.

Yields 16 squares.
