The Best Peanut Butter Bars
We have tried a lot of peanut butter bars in our day, and these Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars are the best we’ve ever tried! We grew up coming home from school to these amazing peanut butter bars waiting for us!
Our favorite treat growing up was the peanut butter bars that the lunch ladies served in our elementary school. We would bring an extra 50 cents to school so we could buy one of these delicious peanut butter bars whenever we could.
We originally shared this recipe on our blog in 2011, and it has since grown to be the most popular dessert recipe and for good reason.
These Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars are so easy to make, but be warned. Once you have one, you’ll have to have another. And another. And possibly half a pan.
No judgements here. Put on those stretch pants and treat yo’ self, girl.
Sheet Pan Dessert to Feed A Crowd
These peanut butter cookie bars are exactly like the famous school cafeteria bars they used to make back in the good ol’ days.
I love that these Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars can feed a crowd and I usually have all the ingredients on hand so if I ever need to make a treat at the last minute, these are my go-to recipe.
These bars are made in a half sheet pan and you can cut them into as many bars as you need.
We like a bigger bar, so we typically cut a pan of these cookie bars into 24 squares, but you could easily cut them into 48 for a smaller serving.
Peanut Butter Bars with Oatmeal
The oatmeal in these Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars gives these the perfect soft and chewy texture.
I’ve used quick oats and old fashioned oats in this recipe and both came out great, so whatever you have on hand will work.
