The Harried Housewife's Recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Posted: Apr 21, 2019 10:07 AM

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER OAT BARS

2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided, plus 1 tablespoon
3/4 cup regular or reduced-fat peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups crispy rice cereal
1/4 cup peanut butter chips, plus 1 tablespoon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9-inch square baking pan with foil, letting ends extend beyond edges on 2 sides. Coat foil with nonstick cooking spray. Place oats on a baking sheet; bake until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a large bowl.

In a medium saucepan, combine honey, brown sugar, and butter. Cook over medium heat until sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 cup chocolate chips, peanut butter, and vanilla. Add to oats; stir to combine. Add cereal, the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips, and 1/4 cup peanut butter chips; stir to combine. Transfer mixture to prepared pan; press into pan. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon chocolate chips and the remaining 1 tablespoon peanut butter chips; press gently into oat mixture. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Remove bars by lifting foil ends; peel off foil. Place on a cutting board and cut into bars. Makes 24 bars.
