Mountain Bar Bars

I love “No Bakes”, or as my family calls them, Mountain Bars. We call them that because they look like the local confection by Brown and Haley (better known as the makers of Almond Roca). Peanut butter, chocolate, oatmeal — yuuuumy! I’m calling these Mountain Bar Bars because they are all the ingredients of the traditional drop cookie, pressed into a layered bar. Still no baking required!

Mountain Bar Bars

Mountain Bar Bars
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter

Directions

  1. Grease a 9×9 inch square pan.
  2. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and vanilla. Mix in the oats. Cook over low heat 2 to 3 minutes, or until ingredients are well blended. Reserve 1/2 cup of mixture for the topping. Press remaining mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a small heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the crust in the pan, and spread evenly with a knife or the back of a spoon.
  4. Crumble the reserved oat mixture over the chocolate layer, pressing in gently. Cover, and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature before cutting into bars.
