Salted Peanut Butter and Chocolate Blondies

I made these and took half to a neighbor who has an owie shoulder. I kept the other half for us so we could try them and I got one. One! So I guess that means they were good or very good apparently!

1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

2 cups packed brown sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup salted and roasted peanuts, chopped

15.25 oz package dark 60% cacao chocolate squares or dark chocolate and sea salt squares (such as Ghirardelli), unwrapped and broken into large pieces

flaky sea salt for sprinkling
