PB&J Bars

This dessert always seems to hit the spot – and will make you feel like a kid again (bonus).


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1  1/2 cups Quaker old-fashioned oats
  • 1 jar of your favorite jelly


  • Using a mixer, blend the sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla and egg until fluffy
  • Mix in the oats, flour, eggs and baking soda – the mixture should be moist, but crumbly
  • Transfer 4 cups of the mixture into a baking pan (I use a Pyrex dish for this)
  • Spread the entire 12 oz. jar of jelly on top of that bottom layer
  • Sprinkle the remaining mix on top
  • Bake at 350°F for 30-35 mins
