If you are looking for more yummy bar recipes then these Monster Cookie Bars are perfect. Peanut butter & oats come together into an easy cookie bar recipe that is absolutely delicious!
I have been wanting to make monster cookies for what seems like forever. Every time I see another recipe for them I get inspired & then somehow it never seems to happen. Probably because sometimes cookies can take while to make. Letting certain ingredients sit out to come to room temperature, waiting for each batch to bake before the next can go in. So it goes, which means I don’t make cookies all that often.
But then I realized that I could just swap out ingredients & create these monster cookie bars instead. So simple & they prep so quickly. Definitely so much easier than spending over an hour in the kitchen for cookies, that’s for sure.
The family was THRILLED. These were so scrumptious. Just the perfect amount of peanut butter, oats & chocolate. I cut these large, so one is absolutely sufficient for dessert. Although I may or may not have added a scoop of homemade ice cream on top just once.
For these bars I used the NEW Country Crock – available at Kroger stores. You know how I LOVE working with real ingredients whenever possible. So I was absolutely thrilled to see that Country Crock, a brand I have used for years, has a new Simple Recipe formula from real ingredients. That’s HUGE for me! So of course I picked some up & immediately tried it out in these delicious bars. It adds all that real taste to our favorite recipes without any extra guilt. I also love the convenience of soft & ready to use Country Crock when it comes to baking. It speeds things along & makes time in the kitchen easy.
