Hello beautiful! Yes, these bars are full of all sorts of chocolate and peanut butter goodness. Sleep has been lacking and I needed something sweet but also somewhat filling. These bars are delicious but also have oatmeal and peanut butter, just what this new mama needs to get through some of the late night, all night long feedings.
The recipe comes together super fast and doesn't take long to bake either. I didn't wait for them to cool down before digging right in.
I originally cut the bars into 16 pieces and then realized that both Mr. J and I were scarfing down two at a time.
They didn't last long but because they only require pantry staples I will be making them again soon. And then again after that too.
Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20-25 minutes
Keywords: bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter
Ingredients (serves 16)
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 large egg, at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8x8-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a stand mixer beat together the peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt on medium speed until well combined.
Add the egg and vanilla, then mix on medium low, just until incorporated.
Remove from mixer and stir in the chocolate chips and oats by hand.
Press the dough into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 20-22 minutes, until golden and the top is set. The middle may appear slightly underdone but it will continue cooking in the pan. Let cool completely in the pan.
Remove, slice and serve.
