If this blog post looks familiar it's because I am posting this recipe for Peanut Butter Bars for the second time. Why? you ask. The first reason is that these peanut butter bars are so delicious - they deserve another spot on the blog. Secondly, the first time that I posted them was over a year and a half ago (Hard to believe I've been blogging that long already.) and I had only a couple of pictures attached to the recipe. When I look back over some of my first blog posts I realize that I've gone from one extreme to the other - one or two photos per recipe to an overabundance of photos. The last reason that I am reposing this particular recipe is because we are in the middle of baseball and soccer seasons right now and these make a perfect team snack. The recipe is easy, it makes a lot and they are easy to transport.
Peanut Butter Bars
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups oats
3/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped peanuts
Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars.
Add dry ingredients and mix well.
Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Allow to soften for a few minutes and then spread over bars.
Sprinkle chopped peanuts over chocolate.
Cool completely and then cut into bars.
I took this particular batch of peanut butter bars to the baseball field to feed the players between games of a double header.
