Reese's Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reese's Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Bars | Addictive cookie bars with lots of Reeses in them!

I am so excited to share this recipe finally...I made it months ago. As always, it takes me forever to resize, add text, upload, and type up everything. And then now I'm only posting two recipes a week, if I get them done in time.

I'm already wishing I had another batch of these sitting around. Similar to the M&M Oatmeal Bars I've made, these things are addictive. I ate almost an entire batch of the M&M sort...and I ate too many of these for my own good too. I'm really not sure what it is...maybe the oatmeal? It just makes them so delicious and so much better than regular ole cookie bars. You guys have to try them!

What you need:
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup Reese's peanut butter baking chips
  • 2 cups Reese's mini peanut butter cups
  1. Cream butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Then add peanut butter.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg. Add vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flours, oatmeal, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix until combined.
  5. Stir in peanut butter chips.
  6. Spread 2/3 of batter into the bottom of a parchment paper-lined 9x13-inch pan. 
  7. Top with mini peanut butter cups. Drop the remaining batter on top and smooth out as best as you can.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 30 minutes.
  9. Let cool completely and cut into bars.
