Golden oreo peanut butter blondies! The perfect way to celebrate my birthday! Filled with oreos, peanut butter cups, and sprinkles…what could be better?!
I have something important to share with you…
Today…is my birthday, but it’s not just any birthday, it’s my golden birthday! Yes. Today, I am 23 on the 23rd! Naturally, I needed to do something totally cheesy, so I’ve made for you guys golden oreo peanut butter blondies! Get it? Golden oreos for my golden birthday? Can you hear the hallelujah chorus? 😉
Since it’s my birthday, I thought today would be the perfect day to share a little bit about myself!
1. 12 is my favorite number. When I was growing up, I thought that turning 12 would be super cool. 😉 Because of that, I’m sharing 12 things about me today!
2. I love candy. Like, it’s my ultimate weakness. Reese’s, Sour Patch Kids, Snickers, Skittles, Starbursts, Reese’s (did I say that already), etc. On Valentine’s Day, Trevor got me this really nice box of chocolates. It took every ounce of will power to not eat the entire box in one sitting.
3. I’m a teeny bit OCD. I like routine, and I like things being in the place they’re supposed to be.
4. I’m obsessed with cooking shows. Trevor and I don’t have cable, so I use my gym time as TV time, too! My favorite shows are Chopped, Master Chef (and Master Chef Junior – holy crap I’m jealous of their talent!), Top Chef, and Throw Down with Bobby Flay.
5. I <3 Bobby Flay. I don’t know why. I just do. I’m dying to eat at one of his restaurants!
6. My guiltiest pleasures are nights at home, watching TV with Trevor and eating Indian food or Pizza Hut pizza. Pretend I didn’t just admit to liking Pizza Hut!
7. Favorite movie: When Harry Met Sally. I think I’ve already watched it 1,000,000 times. Only 1,000,000 times more to go, Trevor 😉
8. Place I most want to travel: Maldives! It’s so beautiful! I’d love to spend all day every day eating great food, having amazing cocktails, and getting massages….all while being on the beach with Trevor! Is that really too much to ask? 😉
9. I am so not current with music. Since Trevor and I don’t have a car, we never really hear what’s on the radio and when I’m at home cooking, I listen to TV shows on Netflix (*cough cough* Friends).
10. I really love traveling and eating. If I could have endless amounts of money and never gain a pound, that’s all I’d do. I’m sure you guys are with me on that one 😉
11. I want to be the next host of Top Chef. I’m partially kidding, but Padma…watch out! 😉 I just think she has the coolest job. Ever!
12. I feel so lucky! I’ve never been happier. I love being married, I love my dog, Teddy – he’s literally the cutest thing I’ve ever seen, I love my friends (old and new), and I’m excited and hopeful that this food blog will take off and become a career, so I can work at home and be there for my future children!
Now, enough about me and on to the golden oreo peanut butter blondies!
These. Are. Perfection. They’re peanut buttery, rich, full of chopped golden oreos and Reese’s peanut butter cups, and just what I wanted as a birthday dessert! They’re also a cinch to put together!

- 1 cup brown sugar packed
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prep a 9 x 13 glass pan with cooking spray.
- Place the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

- Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
- Hand mix in the chopped golden oreos, peanut butter cups, and sprinkles! Don’t over mix.
- Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Note: Strategically place the mixture into the greased pan. It’s a very thick batter which makes it harder to spread!
- In the preheated oven about 25 - 30 minutes. A toothpick should come out almost clean. You don’t want to over bake!
- Let cool before serving!
