Triple Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

True story: almost every time I make a dessert at my house both the kids and the husband always put in a request for one thing to be in it – peanut butter. I don’t know about your family, but peanut butter is a total staple in our pantry and we seriously can’t get enough!

From PB&J’s and peanut butter crackers for lunch to breakfast and dessert treats, the possibilities are endless with peanut butter, and I love that it’s such an affordable, nutritious, and delicious ingredient for my family. Did you know that there are eight powerful grams of protein, two grams of filling fiber, and 12 grams of unsaturated fat in each two-tablespoon serving? Pretty awesome, right?!

Triple Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars Step-by-Step Recipe

First things first, you’re gonna want to grab your favorite creamy peanut butter from the pantry. To create the peanut butter oatmeal bars, start by mixing together the butter and sugars using a hand or stand mixer, then add in the egg, peanut butter, salt, and vanilla.

After that fold in the flour and oats by hand and press the mixture into an 8×8 baking dish that has been lined with parchment paper or sprayed with cooking spray. I highly recommend using parchment paper for easy cutting of the bars.

Next you’re going to create your peanut butter streusel using brown sugar, flour, peanut butter, and butter. Mix together well until a crumbly consistency forms, then sprinkle on top of the peanut butter oatmeal bars. Place the bars in a 350 degree preheated oven and bake for 25-28 minutes, or until the bars are lightly golden. 

While the bars are baking, mix together your peanut butter drizzle using powdered sugar, peanut butter, and milk. Although the recipe calls for 2-4 tsp, note that you may have to add more or less milk depending on the weather and other variables. Add 1 tsp at a time and continue adding as needed until a light drizzle is reached.

Once the bars are fully cooked, remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature. Once cooled, it’s time to add that yummy peanut butter drizzle on top. I prefer using a sandwich bag or icing bag to drizzle it on, but feel free to use a spoon if that’s more your style.
