Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned whole oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 bag mini cadbury eggs (coarsly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a cookie sheet (12"x18") with cooking spray and set aside. 

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat with a handheld mixer, or in the bowl of a stand mixer, for 1-2 minutes. The dough will be lighter in color and look fluffy. 

  3. Add in vanilla extract and eggs. Blend until combined and smooth. 

  4. Add oats and baking soda. Blend just until combined. Add in the chopped mini cadbury eggs and miniature chocolate chips. Stir together with a wooden spoon until combined. 

  5. Dump dough onto the prepared cookie sheet and spread out. You may need to spray your fingers with cooking spray to help the dough not stick. If wanted, gently press down some miniature chocolate chips and chopped Cadbury eggs into the tops of the cookie bars. 

  6. Cook for 17-20 minutes. The edges will be slightly pulled away from side of pan but the middle should still look underdone and "loose". 

  7. Let the bars cool in the pan for about 45 minutes. As they cool they will bake more and come together really nicely. Trust me, you don't want to over bake these!

  8. Cut into squares using a pizza cutter and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

For a true gluten-free cookie bar be sure and use the gluten-free oats.
