Peanut Butter Bars

23 Jan

These went over well with everyone except the lone Peanut Butter hater in our house. 

Each time I make them, it seems they taste better and better. This recipe is modified from the one I found on The original called for Equal instead of sugar. I don’t even know if they sell that here, they probably do, but at any rate, I would still use sugar even if they did.

Also, I didn’t have brown sugar the first time and they still came out delicious.
I also didn’t use the chocolate chips. And, lol, I didn’t have plain baking soda so I just used baking powder.

What you need:

1/2 cup stick butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla (non alcoholic)
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup quick oats, uncooked
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to prepare:

1. Beat butter, sugar and brown sugar until well combined.
2. Stir in milk, peanut butter, egg and vanilla until blended.
3. Gradually mix in combined flour, oats, baking soda and salt until blended.
4. Stir in chocolate chips.
Spread mixture evenly in well-sprayed 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
6. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 23 to 25 minutes.
7. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
8. Cut into squares; store in airtight container at room temperature.

Makes 48 bars. (well, we don’t even come close to 48 bars, but that’s what the recipe states)
