Salty peanut butter bars floating in a pool of sweet strawberry jam make these Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars a memorable treat.
As the summer progresses, and temperature rise, it’s nice to have a few no bake treats on rotation.
If you’re looking for simple weekend no baking treat or great after school snack, try this simple recipe and thrill your whole family.
The flavor of these peanut butter and jelly bars is about as close as you can get to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, without the bread.
Without a doubt, these one pan bars will be a new potluck favorite.
There is something so comforting about peanut butter and jelly. The classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich is a combination of three foods that have been around for a long time!
These peanut butter and jelly bars give you the same flavors as the classic sandwich in a bar form.
Peanut Butter: I’ve used both creamy and crunchy peanut butter in this recipe.
You could definitely stick to using all of one or the other per your preference, just remember to look for no sugar added peanut butter
Preserves: Strawberry preserves are spread in between the layers of peanut butter bar batter.
You could use sugar-free jelly or jam. And, of course, use your favorite flavor! I used my own homemade jam recipe. It’s linked here at the bottom of the page!
Maple syrup: I used choc zero, but any sugar free maple syrup will work great!
Peanuts or chips: peanuts or peanut butter chips, top the bars for a little extra crunch in every bite.
You could leave those off if there is enough nuttiness in the bars for you already.
