Servings: 25-36


  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (crunch or smooth)


  1. Grease a 9" x 9" square pan, set aside.

  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and vanilla. Mix in the oats. Cook over low heat 2-3 minutes, or until well combined. Press half the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Set aside the other half for the topping.

  3. Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently, until smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the crust in the pan, and spread evenly with the back of a spoon. Crumble the remaining oat mixture over the chocolate layer, pressing gently. Cover and refrigerate 2-3 hours, or overnight.

  4. Bring to room temperature before cutting into bars. If you make 5 x 5 slices you'll end up with 25 bars; if you make 6 x 6 slices, you'll end up with 36 bars. Make them the size you want them to be.
