Peanut Butter Bars

This is another recipe I have been making since I was 9 years old, and it turns out great every time…Unless you’re 9 and you keep forgetting ingredients or you accidentally burn it. I swear my mom had so much patience with me when I was first learning to bake.

If you have ever had peanut butter bars from the grocery store, these taste like them – only better. When we make them, we usually end up eating them for breakfast in the morning…They have peanut butter and oatmeal in them – It’s almost healthy!

1 1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup peanut butter
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
3 cups rolled oats
chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees for 15-20 mins. Cream together butter/margarine, sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, and eggs. Add the rest of the ingredients to the mixture. Spread in a 12×18 inch cookie sheet. Chocolate chips can be added before being put in the oven or added afterwards.

  1. I made these for my niece's blessing on Sunday, and they were great! I opted for chocolate frosting instead of chocolate chips, though. I still love the little recipe book you made when we graduated. 🙂

    1. I'm so glad you still use that recipe book! Peanut butter bars are one of my favorites. 🙂 I haven't tried them with frosting yet, but I should!
