Peanut Butter Bars

The peanut butter desserts continue in our house. My mum hates peanut butter desserts. So when I took these for dessert on Sunday I thought they would be quickly shot down. She works at the high school and she told me she only eats school lunch on the days they have the peanut butter bars. Apparently she loves them and she was thrilled I made them, I had no reason to be nervous I guess. Moral of the story, they are so good even people that hate peanut butter desserts will like them. Sweet, crunchy, peanut buttery, and topped with chocolate. Its just about the perfect dessert. You'll love them.

Recipe Source:

1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 cup Brown Sugar, packed

1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
2 1/2 cups Peanut Butter, separated
2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 18x13 jelly roll pan. Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla, eggs, and 1 cup of peanut butter and mix until well combined.

2. Whisk together oats, flour, baking soda, and salt then add to the wet mixture and mix until just combined. Spread onto the prepared jelly roll pan. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

3. As soon as the crust comes out of the oven spread the remaining 1 1/2 cups peanut butter on top. Cool to room temp and the peanut butter is solid again.
