Layers of rich chocolate and creamy peanut butter over a soft and chewy oatmeal cookie base. Makes an easy and delicious sweet and salty treat!
With all the excitement of spring and Cinco de Mayo, I totally forgot to share these oatmeal cookie bars with you guys back in February.
They were inspired by Reese’s peanut butter cups and the Girl Scout Tagalong cookies.
If you are a fan of chocolate and peanut butter, you totally need these in your life!
They combine the two favorites over a soft and chewy oatmeal cookie dough making them the ultimate sweet and salty treat.
The base comes together pretty easily in one bowl especially since there is no mixer involved.
Once they are baked up, you spread a layer of creamy peanut butter followed by pouring another layer of rich melty chocolate on top.
Be sure to set them aside to chill and set before cutting them into bars.
They are the perfect treat to share with lots of people and since they’re so easy to make, you’ll want to make them over and over again for all those summer potlucks, barbecues and even a Mother’s Day brunch.
