Shout out to my Mom for passing along this recipe to me years ago! Pretty sure mine NEVER turn out as good as hers did, but BOY did we look forward to these whenever she made them for us as kids!!! Mmmmmmmmm!!!!

Makes 24 bars

INGREDIENTS:
2 sticks (1 cup) butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 cups quick oats
3/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

*Check out our Grocery Shopping Guide for our tips on selecting the most additive-free versions of these ingredients.

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 9″ x 13″ cake pan.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add sugars and stir to combine. Add oats and stir to combine.

Press the oat mixture evenly into the pan.

Bake until golden brown (about 15 minutes…but REALLY watch it the first time because it took less than 10 minutes in my toaster oven!)

Allow oat crust to cool completely (about 30 minutes).

Then, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips together in a small pan over low heat.

Spread chocolate evenly on top of the oat crust.

Cool completely before cutting and serving (about 1 1/2 hours in the fridge).

We prefer to store these in the fridge to keep the chocolate topping a bit firmer. Otherwise, it will stay softer (more like frosting). Either way….YUM!!!! Enjoy!

These freeze well, too!
