Sometimes you just get a hankering for particular foods. The other evening I had a hankering for peanut butter, which I don’t bake with often because peanuts upset my husbands stomach. However, he was out for the evening, and I really had a craving for it. But not only peanut butter, it had to have some chocolate with it, and oats sounded mighty good too.
These peanut butter chocolate chip bars are the result of my cravings, and they hit the spot!
- ½ cup butter, softened
- 1 cup peanut butter (check ingredients)
