My kids love these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars – it’s one of their favorite breakfast recipes. Melted chocolate chips mixed with peanut butter is never turned away. Plus, with just six ingredients, I don’t mind making them!
peanut butter oatmeal bar recipe, peanut butter oatmeal bars
½cuplight brown sugar – packed
3cupsquick cooking oats
1cupchocolate chips – semi sweet or dark chocolate works best
Prepare a 9x9 pan by lining it with foil, allowing the bars to come out easily when done.
In a saucepan on the stove, melt the butter and add the brown sugar. Mix until well dissolved. Mix in the vanilla extract and oats. Cook for a little longer, until all ingredients are well combined.
Split the mixture in half and pack ½ of it onto the bottom of your prepared pan.
Prepare the peanut butter chocolate mixture by melting the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl, cooking for 20 seconds at a time.
Reserve a few tbsp. worth of chocolate and pour the rest of the chocolate mixture over the bottom layer of oats.
Spoon the remaining oat mixture on top, until the entire top is covered. Drizzle the remaining chocolate mixture on top for a pretty appearance.
Refrigerate overnight or freeze for 30 minutes, then allow the bars to come to room temperature before cutting. Store in the refrigerator.
