Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

by Laura

Sometimes I just love the ease of a bar cookie like these chocolate chip peanut butter oatmeal bars. There is no need to scoop and cook several trays of cookies. Just spread it all into a pan and let it bake.

You can also get a texture with a bar cookie that you can’t always accomplish with a regular cookie. With bars, the result can be a more tender and/or chewy consistency.

This bar cookie recipe I have for you today combines the flavors of 3 cookies – chocolate chip, peanut butter, and oatmeal. Not only are these a  delicious combination of cookies, but these bars are super soft and will say that way for days!
