These were a big treat at our school lunchroom--sweet and chewy, and SO good!
- 3⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
- 2 teaspoons water
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄4 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup butterscotch chips
- 1⁄2 cup creamy peanut butter
- In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, sugars and the water. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and vanilla. Combine the flour,oats, baking soda and salt;gradually add to the creamed mixture.
- Spread into a greased 15x10 inch baking pan. Bake at 325 for 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned.
- For glaze: In a microwave safe bowl, melt chips and peanut butter; pour over warm bars and spread evenly. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
These are great peanut butter bars and simple to make too. I used only chocolate chips for the glaze due to a food allergy. They turned out excellent and the kids loved them. Thx FloridaGrl.
These are better than a Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! I AM NOT KIDDING! I was a bit worried about the butterscotch in the glaze but it was really good. I will make it again and again and I won't change a thing. Thanks so much FloridaGrl for sharing, this recipe is a keeper! :)
VERY good!! I saw this recipe in the Aug/Sept 2007 Taste of Home mag and clipped it out to try. I used a 9.5x13.5 pan, so I had to add about 10 minutes to the baking time. I was a little dubious about the butterscotch chips (they're not my fave), but just the half-cup of them adds a different level to the chocolate glaze. Really good. I might add PB chips or some nuts to the bars if I made these again :)
