    1 tablespoon Canola Oil
    3/4 cup Creamy Peanut Butter

    Bake at 350°F for 26 to 28 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. 
  • 4
    2/3 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
    Place chocolate in the top of a double boiler set over slightly simmering water; melt chocolate chips, stirring until smooth. Spread chocolate evenly over top. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. A combination of butter and canola oil lightens up the batter.
    2. Spread a thin layer of chocolate on the bars to keep the recipe light.
