Need a dessert for the big game? Look no further! These chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars have a double dose of peanut butter and are party ready in 30 minutes!
I have a confession to make: I throw desserts out.
Can you believe it? You may already know that I truly dislike leftovers of any kind, and, unfortunately, I have passed this trait on to my children. Now they won’t even eat leftover dessert. That, my friends, takes not eating leftovers to a whole new level!
Last week I made a pan of bars that sounded amazing on paper. They had 4 layers of goodness – brownies, caramel, nougat, and ganache. Seems like a slam dunk dessert, right? Well, apparently not as I still have ¾ of that pan sitting in my fridge. Not only were they underwhelming, but they were rather putzy to make. Clearly my ROI here was not good. So I regrouped and tried something else. Now these Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars that took 30 minutes from oven to table? Devoured. Every last crumb.
In my family, the best desserts are often the simple ones, especially when they have chocolate and peanut butter. These chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars have an oatmeal and peanut butter base with a chocolate and peanut butter frosting – best combo ever!
Can a dessert get any better? Only when you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry right now. These bars couldn’t be easier to make. Just measure, stir and bake. Add some chocolate chips when they come out of the oven and drizzle some peanut butter frosting on top. Voila! Perfection on a plate.
And a dessert that is gone before I have to throw it out? An endorsement in and of itself!
