Bedtime snack’n jammies


Makes 24-28 bars

Total time: 45 minutes

Preheat oven to 375. Coat a 9×13″ baking pan with nonstick spray

For the base and topping-

Combine in bowl; set aside:
2 1/4 cups quick cooking oats
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 t table salt
1/2 t baking soda

Cream until smooth:
1 1/3 cups brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and mix until blended. Gradually add oat mixture and mix until crumbly.

Measure out and reserve 2 cups of the crumb mixture for the topping. Press the remaining mixture into prepared pan for the base, using the bottom of a measuring cup to “tamp” down the dough.

Spread over base:
1 (12 oz) jar of blackberry jam

Combine reserved crumb mixture with 1 cup of chopped chocolate-covered peanuts.

Sprinkle topping over jam layer, pressing it lightly to adhere. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until jam is bubbly and topping is golden. Cool bar completely before cutting.
