Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars

  • Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars

I don't know about you, but at my elementary school they served AMAZING desserts . . . sometimes I find myself craving the lunch ladies' chocolate cake or homemade cinnamon rolls . . . nowadays I don't think that they even serve dessert in elementary school! Poor kids don't know what they are missing . . .
Elyse gave me this recipe a couple of months ago from Mom's old recipe box and it is seriously SPOT ON to what the lunch ladies served! Trust me- you have to try these!

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter ( or chunky (divided) )
2 cups oatmeal ( (not quick) )
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup Sugar


Cream first 3 ingredients together. Add the vanilla, eggs, and 1 cup of peanut butter and combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together. Spread dough on a greased jelly roll pan (18x13x1"). Make at 350 degrees for 15 minutes (until golden brown). While hot spread 1 1/2 cups peanut butter on top. Drop all over top by little spoonfuls. It will soften (melt) and make it easier to spread. Cool so that the peanut butter has become solid again (I usually throw them in the fridge so they set up faster and so I can eat them sooner!). Spread your favorite chocolate frosting on cooled peanut butter bars.
