PB Lova.

Happy National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day my lovaaaah’s. 🙂
Friday just got absolutely freaking fabulous. 
News flash for you: I’m a peanut butter lover.
Could ya tell?
I sure hope so. 😉
I mean, it’s like gold…or just a really, really, ridiculously good looking pair of high heels. 

It’s like that new car smell each time I stick my spoon in a jar of peanut butter. 
Like, you know what to expect but it just gets better each time. 

It’s even better with banana and honey. 
Fun fact: the only time I will ever eat bananas are in combination with peanut butter. 
Or in banana bread…duh. 

I mean, bananas were practically invented for the sole purpose of being slathered with peanut butter.

Oh, and being baked inside of things with peanut butter to make the house smell absolutely freaking delicious. 

I’m pretty sure you can’t bottle the smell. It’s just that gooood. 

What’s better than peanut butter? Peanut butter on peanut butter. 

That’s why we need a deliciously sinful peanut butter-y peanut butter glaze. 

Glaze always makes things better. 

Especially a maple peanut butter glaze.

Peanut butter factor X’s 2!

Don’t forget to wash this down with a tall glass of milk. 

Now if only I could be transported to my second grade lunch period where I would munch on homemade pb & j sandwiches with one of those classic boxed milk cartons. 

Now I’m advanced…mason jars are the new milk carton. 

So grown-up!

2. Combine all of the ingredients for the bars in a large mixing bowl. Mix until smooth.
3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bars comes out clean.
4. While the bars are baking, combine all of the glaze ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth.
5. Let the bars cool completely before cutting into even squares.
6. Drizzle each bar with a good helping of glaze and serve with a glass of milk!
