Dr. Cookie Peanut Butter Squares

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

These are a great treat when you love peanut butter, but don't like all the high-fat versions of bars. They are from a book called Dr. Cookie. I find these very satisfying for a relatively low-fat peanut butter bar.

These were awesome! The only thing I did was add maybe 1/2 tsp. vegetable oil when mixing the sugar and peanut butter to prevent them turning out too dry.
