This is from the Williams-Sonoma website. Yields around 12 bars.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or creamy)
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • confectioners’ sugar for dusting

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Grease an 8″ square baking pan, then line with parchment paper, letting it hang over two sides.
  3. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Combine butter, brown sugar, and peanut butter until creamy.
  5. Add egg and vanilla.
  6. Combine the two mixtures until just blended.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
  8. Cool completely.
  9. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.
  10. Lift from pan and cut into bars.

Modifications

  • I used a mix of dark brown sugar and regular brown sugar.
  • I used a mix of crunchy peanut butter and creamy peanut butter.

After Thoughts

Mm… very, very good. The powdered sugar adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the bars and they’re perfectly chewy. It’s like a giant, dense peanut butter cookie. You may think you are not in the mood for peanut butter, but once you try these, everything changes, ha.
