Peanut Butter & Chocolate Crumble Bars

Welcome back to another Fantabulous Friday where you get the recipe to an awesome dessert! This is what I made for the boys this week and it was a hit!

*FYI: This recipe can easily cut in half. Since we are not huge dessert eaters (they would like to be, I assure you) half of a recipe is perfect because it gives us a taste, maybe a bit leftover for later, and then no extra to go to waste.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Crumble Bars

(Full Recipe)

1 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

2 cups old-fashioned oats

2 cups flour (I used  a 1/2 unbleached & 1/2 whole wheat mix)

1 tsp. baking soda

1 pkg (8 squares) semi-sweet chocolate baking squares

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (can substitute crunchy)

HEAT oven to 350*F.

BEAT butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Combine oats, flour, and baking soda, then add to sugar mixture; mixing well.

PRESS 3 cups of crumb mixture onto bottom of 13×9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. {I used the butter paper to grease pan liberally. A great use for any extra softened butter that sticks to the paper. Also just a good way to utilize everything without any waste. Cool, huh?}

MICROWAVE chocolate in small microwavable bowl on HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until melted, stirring after 45 seconds. Stir in peanut butter. Carefully spread over crust; sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.

BAKE 22 to 25 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely.

Yeah, I'll be licking that... 🙂
