Whether your kids scored a ton of candy or you just bought way too much candy this year, you might find yourself with a LOT of candy around.

Peanut Butter Brownies {Gluten-free}

Peanut Butter Brownies {Gluten-free}

These peanut butter brownies are truly unlike any others I've come across in the 20-some years I've been baking.

Loaded with chocolate chips, these brownies are gooey and fudgy just out of the oven. After they set, they become perfectly chewy. I enjoy them both ways.  I had a hankering for gooey, warm from the oven brownies a while back so I ...

These super soft, very peanut buttery cookies are nothing like the dry, crunchy ones you've probably had before. With a few tweaks to the recipe, these went from really ...

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins {Gluten-free}

My local grocery stores usually offer a great deal on overripe bananas. When I know I'll have some time for baking, I'll snatch up a bunch of them so I can stock my freezer with banana muffins. This past year I tried out peanut butter banana muffins for the first time, and while my kids thought they were ok, I wasn't too crazy about them.  They just didn't have the right texture, so I kept looking for a better recipe.  Recently I saw this recipe for peanut butter ...
