This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek. I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine. My kids love peanut butter. Peanut butter and jelly uncrustables, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and the list goes on. When I told them I was going to make some peanut butter and jelly crumble bars they were all piled in to the kitchen around my KitchenAid stand mixer. Usually they have to be volun-told to do things around the house but when it comes to making desserts like my peanut butter and jelly crumble bars they come looking to “help”. I can usually hear one of the boys going through the house singing “peanut butter jelly time” at any given time.

Peanut butter and jelly is a classic. I tell my best friend we go together like pb&j. I would bet that once you try these peanut butter and jelly crumble bars they will become one of your favorite ways to enjoy pb&j. I was once allergic to peanuts so now that I can have them I have tried all kinds of recipes using peanut butter and next to peanut butter and chocolate these bars are a grand way to have peanut butter and jelly.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Crumble Bars

Ingredients
Bars:
1 stick unsalted butter; melted
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (9 oz) jar of fruit spread (I end up using about half of the jar on these)

Crumb topping:
1/2 stick butter; melted
1/2 cup all purpose-flour
1/3 cup old fashioned oats (NOT the instant kind)
1/4 cup Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
1/4 Teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray an 8×8 baking dish with non-stick cooking or baking spray.
  3. BARS: In a large microwavable bowl melt the 1 stick of butter.
  4. Add the 1/3 cup of peanut butter and microwave again for 15 seconds.
  5. Whisk the butter and peanut butter until it’s combined and has no lumps.
  6. Let the butter mix set a moment to cool and then add the egg, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and whisk or mix until it’s smooth.
  7. Add the salt and flour and mix again but be careful not to over mix.
  8. Pour the batter in to the greased 8×8 baking dish and bake for 15 minutes.
  9. CRUMB TOPPING: While the bars are baking make the crumble topping.
  10. In a large microwave safe bowl melt the half stick of butter.
  11. Add the flour, old fashioned oats, sugars, and salt and stir to combine. The mixture will be dry looking but that’s what makes it a crumble.
  12. Once the bars are done baking for 15 min. remove them from the oven and spread the fruit spread over the peanut butter bar layer. You’ll want to a space around the edges because the fruit spread will indeed spread out as it gets hot and melted.
  13. Top the peanut butter layer and fruit spread with the crumble topping and bake for another 25 minutes or until the crumble topping is golden brown.
  14. Wait about an hour and a half before slicing into squares to give the bars time to set or they will fall apart on you as you try to cut and serve them.
