Delicious peanut butter bars

Delicious peanut butter bars

Peanut Butter Bars is one of my best baked peanut desserts. It’s so full of peanut flavour and taste, just what I really like with a hot cup of coffee or tea any time of the day. It’s a great dessert to share with friends.

I bake every weekend, mostly to share with friends. I was wondering what to bake this weekend until I saw the gorgeous mouth-watering Date And Walnut Slice by Cheah at No-Frill’s Recipes. The picture reminded me of my peanut butter bars. So, I made this beautiful dessert again yesterday to share with friends today. All of them liked it very much the first time I made for them. It is a very simple, easy and quick recipe. Here’s how I did it:

Ingredients A
250g butter
300g brown sugar
100g white sugar
200g peanut butter
3 eggs
1t vanilla

Ingredinets A to beat

Ingredinets A to beat

Put everything into a mixing bowl and beat until smooth.

Ingredients B
300g flour
1/2t salt
1t baking soda
200g oat

Sift the flour with salt and baking soda into the mixture in Ingredients A. Then add the oat and mix well.

Pour into a shallow tin (lamington), level it and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Wait until it’s fully cooled down before cutting.

This is a very delicious, peanut dessert that would go great with coffee or tea.

They’re really great with coffee. When I find some dates, I would make the “Food for the Gods”. Can you send me a box of that cake? I just baked a French Chocolate Cake the other day and will make it again next week. :D And more mochi although no baking required.

Trissa  on December 6th, 2009

Yum! They looks good Mary! I prefer peanut butter bars to brownies actually so this would be great for me!

jocelyn  on December 6th, 2009

Sarah, Maison Cupcake  on December 6th, 2009

These look great, though I may struggle not to eat the mix before I’ve baked it!!! Congrats on being Top 9 today as I just read on twitter, off to buzz you up!

Mary  on December 6th, 2009

@Divina - Mmmmm…..would love the French Chocolate Cake. Can exchange with yuu my Peanut Butter Bars:P Mochi? Oh….they are just so delicious…just made some daifuku early this morning.

@Trissa - Gosh…I think I have too many to like, including the brownies. I just need to exercise more to indulge in more…hehe.

@Jocelyn - I know…..think of my waistline at each bite I take…LOL. That’s why have to make to share with others so that I don’t over eat. Oh no….don’t eat too much maggie mee…very bad for health. Eat healthy to stay healthy, young & pretty…good incentive :) Hope you start cooking soon.

@Sarah - Haha…I can imagine that. Oh…thanks for Congrats….what a surprise to be voted. I have to thank everyone for voting for me. Thanks very much for your support.

Gail  on December 6th, 2009

Yummmmm! These look too good and soooo easy! Thank you for the recipe.

Shirley  on December 6th, 2009

I love this. Oats is my favourite ingredient for kids. The combination of peanut butter and oats is just perfect for kids. Well done. You do have a way of making recipes so simple.

Mary  on December 6th, 2009

@Gail - Thanks for visiting and comment. They are very easy…made another tray & just out of the oven. My house smells so good now :)

@Shirley - I love simple cooking and baking. I’m sure kids will also love to help make this peanut butter bars.

Sanjana  on December 6th, 2009

Well, I’m just obsessed with ANYTHING containing peanut butter- These would be so yummy with a big mug of hot chocolate too! Mmmm!

Cookin' Canuck  on December 6th, 2009

I don’t think I could wait for these to cool before diving in! These sound so easy and tasty. I have been doing plenty of baking lately. My favorites have been mint chocolate fudge and brown butter pine nut cookies.

Hey, these look yummy. I like peanut butter too, and the pic….. the peanut bars stand out very well on the white cake stand.

Light Delight with TouTou  on December 6th, 2009

M’m M’m…yummy yummy!
you are so generous in peanut butters haha, I love that!!! I am a big fun of peanut butter, and PB cookies :-D can’t resist that peanut flavor :-D if your PB bar is somewhere on the shelve, I’ll definitely take it!!

Mary  on December 6th, 2009

@foodlovee - It is really easy…..beat, mix and bake….3 simple steps. Hope you try out soon.

@Choclette - Thanks for visiting and lovely comment. Yes, very peanutty. Not sure how many pieces I had eaten. Quite addictive.

@3hungrytummies - Easy and yummy. My daughter made the second tray for me…her first time. So, it’s actually very easy.

@cheah - Haha…my lovely cake stand…another collection. Bought long time ago but used for the first time! I’m not sure what else I’ve yet to discover.

@Light Delight with TouTou - If I have to make this, might as well add a lot of peanut butter to get the kick :D I hope to make the peanut cookies one of these days. I miss peanut candies…those that use peanut powder…mmmm….so good. If you are here, I’ll have to make extra trays….LOL.

Jennifer  on December 6th, 2009

These look quite delicious! I’ll have to remember to make these sometime.

Mary  on December 6th, 2009

@Jennifer - Thanks for visiting and comment. Hope you try out soon.

Anne  on December 6th, 2009

Mary, have you tried this with crunchy peanut butter? If so, so you need to make any adjustments?

Mary  on December 6th, 2009

@Anne - It should be fine. I made one tray yesterday with the smooth peanut butter and one tray today with the crunchy peanut butter. Both of them tasted equally good. It blends very well with the oat.

Anne  on December 6th, 2009

Okay great!

Alta  on December 6th, 2009

That is very very nice. Nice with hot chocolate!

Mary  on December 8th, 2009

@Penny - I’m having one now with hot tea. Love every bite. I think it makes me think better in this cold weather :D

Impromptu Diva  on December 9th, 2009

You got me at PEANUT BUTTER!!! I could almost smell the peanut butter right now! I will have this with my hot chocolate. perfect combination for a cold december weather!

Mary  on December 10th, 2009

@Impromptu Diva - Aha…you must be a great peanut butter lover. Then this must be for you. It’s so comforting to have it with a cup of hot drink, like you said, in this cold December weather.

kristy  on December 10th, 2009

Oh wow, I love anything with oats! I like chewing on them. And these peanut butter bars such wonderful treat. yum…

Mary  on December 11th, 2009

@Kristy - Now you sound like you can eat oat like tit bits. I guess you snack on it. I’m not an oat lover but I love this peanut bars. I think the lovely flavour of peanut over shadow the oat :)

Michael Cavinta  on January 1st, 2010

Oh my!! Thanks for sharing with us one of my favorite desserts of all time! I would definitely give this one out a try as I want to stock peanut butter bars in my ref so that it will be available anytime I crave for it. As I have also read in http://www.oncoffeemakers.com this dessert would really go well with coffee. Thanks again! Happy New YEar!

Mary  on January 2nd, 2010

@Michael - Wow…a great peanut lover I have met! They are absolutely gorgeous with coffee. That’s how I always eat them….just yummy! Hope you enjoy making them. Thanks for the link about coffee. Happy New Year to you, too!

prophet25  on January 3rd, 2010

@mary I wonder if putting some grated peanuts would make it even more delicious. As in, the skippy peanut butter with the peanuts pieces inside. @michael -great coffee blog, loves the free ebooks:)

Mary  on January 4th, 2010

@Prophet25 - I haven’t tried that but I suppose it will work. Maybe don’t add too much or the peanut bars will be too crumbly. May be try with crunch peanut butter first. I love the coffee blog too….very informative.
