Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

These have been on several food blogs lately and i had to try them... Be sure to let them cool completely before cutting....
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars
6 TBSP unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease an 8x8 pan. * i doubled the recipe and used a 13x9 pan.
Whisk together flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside. In bowl of mixer, cream butter and peanut butter on medium until smooth. Beat in sugars until mixture is lightened in color and fluffy.
Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition and then add vanilla. Reduce mixer to low speed and slowly add in the flour mixture. Add the chocolate chips, stirring until combined.
Spread the batter into the pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. If you doubled you might need extra baking time.
