Peanut Jelly Bars Recipe

Peanut Jelly Bars Recipe

A layer of grape jelly between a peanut-oatmeal crust and topping gives these bars a taste of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! The recipe is from Sonja Blow of Reeds Spring, Missouri.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) grape jelly


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture just until combined. Stir in oats and peanuts (mixture will be crumbly).
  • 2. Press half of the mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Spread with jelly. Cover with remaining crumb mixture.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 2 dozen.

"My husband really enjoyed these bars. He loved the peanutty taste. I plan to make these again using strawberry jelly."
