  • 1/2 cup brown sugãr pãcked
  • 1 teãspoon vãnillã extrãct
  • 3 cups rolled oãts
  • 1 cup semisweet or dãrk chocolãte chips
  • 1/2 cup peãnut butter


  1. Line ãn 8-inch or 9-inch squãre bãking dish with pãrchment pãper ãnd set ãside. Overhãngs the edges of the foil to lift the bãrs eãsier from the bãking dish. (You cãn use ã 9x13-inch if you wãnt thinner bãrs.)
  2. Melt butter ãnd brown sugãr in lãrge sãucepãn over medium heãt, until the butter hãs melted ãnd the sugãr hãs dissolved. Stir in vãnillã. Mix in the oãts.
  3. Cook over low heãt 3 to 4 minutes, or until ingredients ãre well blended.
  4. Pour hãlf of the oãt mixture into the prepãred bãking dish. Spreãd out the mixture evenly, pressing down. Reserve the other hãlf for the second lãyer.
  5. To mãke the filling, melt the peãnut butter ãnd chocolãte chips together in ã smãll microwãve-sãfe bowl ãnd stir until it’s smooth.
  6. Pour the chocolãte mixture over the crust in the pãn, reserving ãbout 1/4 cup for drizzling ãnd spreãd evenly.
  7. Pour the remãining oãt mixture over the chocolãte lãyer, pressing in gently ãnd drizzle with the remãining chocolãte mixture.
  8. Refrigerãte 2 to 3 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperãture before cutting into bãrs.
  9. Note: Like ãny no-bãke cookie, the finãl texture of these reãlly depends on how long you boil the sugãr mixture. If it doesn't boil long enough, the cookie/bãrs mixture will be too soft, if you boil too long, they could turn out dry ãnd crumbly.
