Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Bars

3/4 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 banana, puréed
1 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/4 cups flour

1 cup milk chocolate pieces

Heat oven to 375

With an electric mixer, beat butter and peanut butter together until smooth, scraping sides as necessary. Add sugars and beat for about 3 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla, and salt, mixing well. Add baking soda and 1/2 of the flour, beat until just mixed. Add banana purée, repeat. Add remaining flour until batter forms. Spread evenly into 9×13 inch pan.

Sprinkle chocolate pieces evenly over the top. Place in oven for 3 minutes, then taking a knife, swirl chocolate by dragging knife through the chocolate pieces and dough across pan to make a marbled effect.

Bake an additional 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool, then cut into bars.

Makes 18-24 servings
