Peanut Butter Bar Recipe
July 11, 2011 § Leave a comment
It’s 90 degrees and sticky outside! That only means one thing for dinner – no cooking allowed! Currently, we are not using our central air since we haven’t really needed so far this summer. Our house stays pretty cool during the day since we leave the window fans on all night that bring in the cool breeze at night. We decided to make salads for dinner with lots of delicious ingredients!
My salad included:
- Lettuce from our garden
- Hard boiled eggs
- Leftover grilled chicken
- Newman’s Own Light Italian dressing
Perfect for a summer night!
Now, onto that peanut butter bar recipe I promised you! I started making these last summer when I saw them on Tina’s blog. I made a few changes to the ingredients but followed the same cooking instructions. The final recipe ended up looking like this:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used Jif)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 egg
I’ve added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in the past and they are even better than the regular peanut butter bars (obviously!). I know what I’m having for dessert!
What is your favorite dessert bar?
