Really – is there anything better than peanut butter and chocolate? Answer – YES! Mix it with rolled oats and bake it into cookie bars Oh, ya its gluten free too! woot woot!
Lets get to it!
Gluten Free Peanut Butter -Chocolate Cookie Bars
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup peanut butter – (creamy)
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup butter (salted) – softened
- 3/4 cup flour (I use all purpose gluten free flour (rice))
- 1 , 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
grease 9X13 glass pan – set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt chocolate in glass dish in microwave for about 1 min, stir then nuke i for another 15 seconds – stir until smooth. (you may need to nuke it for another 10 seconds). Set aside.
Blend together (I used my stand up KitchenAid) butter, peanut butter and brown sugar until blended and smooth. Add egg (beaten), and vanilla. Continue beating, add flour & baking soda. Stir in rolled oats.
Place in bottom of pan, and make a “layer”. (Optional reserve 1/4 of batter for top). Pour chocolate on top and smooth into another layer. If using option – dot the top with the rest of the batter. Bake at 350 (uncovered) for 24-26 minutes. Let cool. * This recipe is better once totally cooled rather than still warm. enJoy.
