It’s everything you love about a soft chocolate chip cookie and then some. The addition of oatmeal adds another layer of texture and the combination of peanut butter and chocolate will always be a favorite of mine.

These make a tasty stand-alone dessert or add something special to a cookie tray or dessert spread. No matter how you serve them, I have a feeling the only thing left will be crumbs.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9″ square baking pan with baking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter until smooth, about 5 minutes. I’ve included a printable recipe card below for a full rundown of the recipe ingredients and instructions.

Add in the egg and vanilla extract. Beat again until smooth. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined.

Spread this into your prepared baking pan and sprinkle evenly with the chocolate chips.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until set and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow the bars to cool.

In the meantime, prepare the peanut butter glaze by whisking together the confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, and milk. Add more or less milk to achieve a drizzling consistency.

Once your bars are cool, drizzle with the peanut butter icing. Slice, serve, and enjoy! Extras bars can be stored in an airtight container.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. As always, happy baking!

    This looks so yummy and perfect for fall. I’d love to share this on my weekly round-up blog post on Saturday.

    Two of my favorite flavors, Michael! Can’t wait to try these. Thank you

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thank you so much, Mary! They are a winner!

      xo Michael

    My family has loved these for years! I use a combo of chocolate and butterscotch chips and they are delicious! (Who doesn’t love butterscotch and peanut butter?!) I’ve also crushed up holiday M&M candies to make them “fancy” when my kids were little.

  • Vv at

    Sounds delicious. Can’t wait to try this recipe. Thank you for all recipes and decorating suggestions.

  • Linda at

    These look amazing and I look forward to all the sweet spicy recipes, regardless of whether they are brown or any other color!! Indulging in some sweet treats does not make someone unhealthy and I’m so appalled at the rude, thoughtless comment by the poster above. Honestly is it that hard to either leave a kind comment or just move on to a blog that suits ones tastes?!! Keep doing exactly what you enjoy Michael and we’ll follow along and enjoy all of your creative expertise.

  • Meredith at

    For the record, I think you’re fabulous! Who doesn’t love brown food! Duh, peanut butter!

  • Michelle at

    These look delicious, Michael. I’m going to add them to my fall baking recipe list!

    Thank you for your hard work and effort. There are people who do appreciate your content!

  • Sue at

    Yay, a dessert that actually makes a smaller pan size! It’s just my husband and I at home now, and we definitely do not need a big pan of bars in the house, so this is the perfect size. 😉 This looks delicious and I’ll give it a try. Thank you!

  • Cathleen at

    Added a half of cup of Virginia salted peanuts on the top. The addition of the crunch and saltiness of the peanuts was delightful!
