I don’t have a lot of time for posting today, so I thought I would share a recipe that Mack made in her Foods class at school last week and then came home and made for our family.  It was tasty!


1/4 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

3 T. shortening

1 egg

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup oats

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt


  1. Cream together first six ingredients.
  2. Stir in dry ingredients, mix well.
  3. Pour into microwave tube pan.
  4. Meanwhile, in a cereal bowl, mix together 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 2 T. peanut butter.  Cook for 30-40 seconds or until melted.
  5. Spread over bars.

I copied and pasted this recipe and didn’t realize that it was missing a major step.  Lol!  Thank you to dmwright and Joy for pointing it out.

You microwave the bars 3 minutes and then let stand for 3 minutes.
