Barb's Peanut Butter Squares

I think I may have to buy Great Canadian Cookies, Bars & Squares because its filled with great recipes. Take these bars for instance. Barb's Peanut Butter Squares are fantastic. They combine peanut butter and chcolate in one easy to make, old fashioned treat that never goes out of style.

First, you have to make a oatmeal cookie dough and a creamy peanut butter mixture. The peanut butter is layered between the oatmeal dough but not before a generous sprinkling of chocolate chips is added. This is then baked up into chewy golden squares that are homey, satisfying and perfect when you're craving something sweet, but not too sweet. The overall bar is very tasty. I used large flake oats so the oatmeal is very pronounced in every bite and I also used natural peanut butter which worked just fine in the peanut butter layer.

I would definitely make these bars again even though they are a bit more time consuming than regular peanut butter cookies. It takes time to press everything into place and your fingers will get messy! They are very totable and kid-friendly provided no one has a peanut allergy. Try them out!

Peanut butter, chocolate, oatmeal ... Mmm, it sounds like a superb combination of flavours and textures. I like that you can use natural peanut butter in these, which means that -- yay! -- they're almost healthy!

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
