As if eating a peanut butter cookie bar isn’t enough, I’ve added a sweet layer of peanut butter fudge swirled in the the center!

I don’t know if you’re like me, and you have one million cookbooks on your shelf, but still find yourself thumbing through the same ones over and over?

When I got married (21 years ago!!) I was given a Better Homes and Garden Cookbook. If you don’t have it yet, I’m sure you’ve seen it on the shelves, with that iconic red/white checkered pattern on the front?

Well, years ago I made the Chocolate Revel Bars from this cookbook. Then I changed them a little (adding some butterscotch) by making these Triple Chip Revel Bars. A couple months ago I used ONLY butterscotch in the filling and made some Butterscotch Revel Bars. Today, I’ve taken that same recipe and made Peanut Butter Revel Bars.

Why, you ask, do I keep going back to this recipe and changing it up? Because it’s good you guys. And it makes a huge amount, which is perfect for potlucks, barbeques, holidays, bake sales, and freezing for later!

The basic cookie dough is packed with butter, sugar, peanut butter, and oats! It makes a good sturdy cookie base for the peanut butter fudge filling you will add to the center. You’ll save some of the cookie dough and dollop it on top of the fudge layer before baking. The result?

A gorgeous peanut butter flavored cookie that is a hit with everyone!!

Got peanut butter allergies? This is awesome with Biscoff too!

Peanut Butter Revel Bars are a sweet, chewy cookie bar, perfect for potlucks, holidays, and bake sales. Also freezes well for later!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (divided)
  • 2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups quick-cook oatmeal
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 package (11 oz) peanut butter chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat 14 Tbsp of butter (reserving the extra two for later), brown sugar, and peanut butter until well blended. Add in baking soda, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat until combined. Add flour and oats and mix until blended. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk and 2 Tbsp butter. Heat over low heat until butter is melted. Fold in peanut butter morsels and stir constantly until melted and smooth.
  4. Press 2/3 of cookie dough into bottom of baking sheet. Keep pressing with your fingertips, it will fit, honest!! Pour peanut butter mixture over top of cookie dough and spread evenly. Drop remaining dough by teaspoon over the top (will not cover completely, that's okay).
  5. Bake for 25-28 minutes until browned. Cool completely. Cut and enjoy. Store in airtight container (best when chilled)!

Notes

**If peanut allergy, substitute Biscoff for the peanut butter, and use white chocolate morsels for the fudge layer!

  1. I end up baking from the same books over and over too!  That peanut butter layer in these bars was to die for!!! I can’t wait to make them again!!!

  2. MMmmm thse looked scrumptious on Instagram ( I think thats where I first saw them). I have never made revel bars but clearly need to!!

  3. I do go back to the same cookbooks again and again. They’re like old friends!
    And these bars are a new friend I need to make!

  4. These bars look amazing! I Love peanut butter, I look forward to trying these. I feel I should double up because I doubt the family would see any of the first batch!

  5. Wow – what a decadent adaptation of those Revel bars you initially found in your Better Homes and Garden Cookbook. These look sinfully delicious – my daughter and her friends would so enjoy these bars! Thanks so much Aimee.
