Salted Peanut Butter Cup Bars

Chewy on the inside, with just a hint of flaky texture on the outside. They're packed with melty chocolate and peanut butter pieces and full of sweet, buttery flavor. 

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a 8X8 pan with parchment paper along the bottom up the sides.

Step 1:  

Whisk the all purpose flour, almond flour and salt together until well combined.

Step 2:  

Beat the sugar and butter on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined. 

Step 3:  

Add the dry ingreidents to the wet and mix by hand or on the lowest setting until JUST combined. Once the dough is mostly combined, add in the chopped PB cup and chocolate pieces. 

Step 4:  

Starting at the edges, working in to the center, evenly press the dough into the prepared 8x8 pan.

Step 5:  

Bake the dough in a 350F oven for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are set and golden brown. The center will look more a light golden brown. Cool in the pan for 30 minutes. 

Step 6:  

Top with flaky salt if desired. Remove the cookie bars from the pan, slice and enjoy!
