These peanut butter chocolate chip bars with oatmeal are really good! The kids didn’t even notice they contained oatmeal. Don’t tell them!! My kids are great about trying the recipes I make and sometimes create. Sometimes the recipes are a little different. Sometimes they taste great but don’t look Pinterest worthy. My one son’s besties can be counted on to eat up these trials. It’s a win, win situation. I don’t waste food and they get a treat!
Because of class scheduling, my youngest (who is in high school) has to walk to and from the high school building that houses the senior classes and then back to the freshman/sophomore building during his lunch. This poor kid and his buddy have to eat their lunches walking to and from classes. It’s going to be nasty doing this when it’s the dead of winter. I should mention we live in Wisconsin. That cold weather and snow is coming. The shorter days are telling me we can’t avoid it.
I make lots of baked goods and we certainly can’t eat it all. I’ve started packing an extra treat for son’s buddy. Apparently, it’s now known as the Momcrieff treat of the day : ). Seriously, I was nervous about the whole teenaged time but I have two now. Two boys. And I love them and their friends! What awesome people they are. It’s never a dull moment! My kids have never made me laugh so much (in a totally great way!).
Just so you know, these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars with oatmeal are the favorite at this point! The tray is quickly emptying, even without me sending these in for lunches. As an fyi, it’s a great bar treat when you need to bring/send one. Because they are so thick and rich, cut them into smaller pieces. Just be aware of those peanut allergies.
