Memories of lunchtime at school and my Aunt Shelly's kitchen come to mind when I bite into these sweet, chewy bars. My husband is the biggest fan of these peanut butter and chocolate treats. —Janis Luedtke, Westminster, Colorado

Very easy to bake and very delicious! !

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2013

This was my first time making them and my kids loved them except they were very crumbly and dry. I'm just wondering if that was because I used unsalted butter instead of regular butter?? Other than that, my kids loved them and I will definitely make them again and again! Especially for my girl Scout girls! Thank you for the recipe! Seattle, Wa

These were good, but turned out very puffy and cake-like. I was expecting something more the texture of blondies. I made them with all whole-wheat flour and old fashion oats.
