Can we all just agree that peanut butter makes everything better! I was in the mood to make a dessert bar and definitely wanted peanut butter involved haha.. the end result was these amazing peanut butter crumble oatmeal bars and I just about melted when I bit into one.. The crumble topping gives off a nice sweetness and I highly recommend drizzling a little melted peanut butter on top when you are ready to eat one.. Recipe makes 12 bars at 5SP each on both blue & green and 4SP on purple.

Peanut butter crumble oatmeal bars

Servings 12
5SP blue & green, 4SP purple.. 4PP

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup oats *I used qucik oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • FOR THE CRUMBLE TOPPING
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp light butter (softened)

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9 inch square dish with some cooking spray.
  • In a bowl using an electric mixer mix together the apple sauce and 1/4 cup of brown sugar, add in the egg and mix well, then add in the peanut butter and vanilla and mix till well blended.
  • Stir in the flour, oats, baking powder and soda.
  • Pour batter into the baking dish and spread out evenly.
  • In a small bowl mix together the crumble ingredinets, flour, brown sugar, peanut butter and butter. I find using a few knives and cutting it (like you would cold butter into flour) works well to form the crumble texture you want.
  • Sprinkle on top of the batter then bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Let cool then cut into 12 equal bars.
  • *Optional to melt and drizzle a little peanut butter on top, I highly recommend this and you can do it over the whole thing or just per bar when you are ready to eat one.
  • These bars store well in a sealed container and after a day or two I put them in the fridge.
  • *Note- You could probably substitute with PB2 in wet form although I have not tried so I can't give an honest answer to if they will turn out the same.

      Sure, I just don’t know the point difference so you’d need to maybe build it in the App 🙂

    Hi! I’m pretty new to Weight Watchers and this is one of the first recipes I found! It looks so delicious!!

    Did you use normal brown sugar or the Splenda brown sugar mix?

      Hi Autumn, welcome to WW 🙂 I used regular but you could substitute for the splenda and adjust the points accordingly, I hope you enjoy the bars

    Curious, could i add some chopped up apples to this? I feel like it would be a lot better with some kind of fruit. Thoughts?

    Do you think I could make these as muffins instead? I always find it so much easier to portion out that way.
