Peanut Butter Cookie Bars with Nutella Glaze:

1 ½ cups flour
½ cup oatmeal
½ tsp salt
½ tsp soda
½ heaping tsp powder
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
½ cup butter
½ cup peanut butter
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Cream the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Combine the dry ingredients and add. Spread into a greased 9X13 pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until done (but still slightly soft in the middle). Allow to cool completely in the pan.

Nutella Glaze:

1/3 cup chocolate hazelnut spread (Nutella)
4 or 5 Tbsp powdered sugar
milk, enough to thin to desired consistency

Mix the sugar and Nutella until smooth. Add the milk, slowly until it becomes more of a glaze than a frosting.

Pour over the cooled bars, either before or after they are cut.


  1. Those bars look incredibly tempting with the glaze dripping off of them. I'm starting a new linky on my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link this up.

  2. A lot of folks in my house would make these disappear in seconds. This is the kind of recipe that everyone loves. This was my first visit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
