Hawaii Mom Blog: Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars

Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars

In my effort to clean out the pantry, I decided to make the Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars.

It's similar to the recipe Nat posted, but this recipe incorporates rolled oats.
The bars are thick and rich - I ended up cutting them in half!

Such a yummy way to use up items in the pantry!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars

  • 2 c flour
  • 2 c rolled oats
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1 c butter, softened
  • 1 c brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c peanut butter
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c jelly
  • 1/2 c peanuts
  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. 
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, and baking soda.
  • In a separate medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar,  Stir in the egg, peanut butter, and vanilla. 
  • Pour the flour and oat mixture into the peanut butter mixture and combine.
  • Press ¾ of the cookie dough into the bottom of a 9x13 prepared baking dish.
  • Spread the jelly evenly on the cookie dough. 
  • Sprinkle remaining cookie dough on top of jelly.  
  • Sprinkle the peanuts over the top and press down gently.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes.
  • Cool completely before cutting into bars.
