Chocolate Peanut Butter Revel Bars

Chocolate and peanut butter are at it again – this time in oatmeal bar cookie form!

We’ve been over this before: chocolate and peanut butter win. Always. In whatever form. Peanut butter cookie dough brownies, peanut butter eggs a la Reese’s, oatmeal cookies with peanut butter and chocolate…and today they are at it again.

I don’t know exactly what a “revel bar” is, but if these bar cookies are true revel bars, then revel bars are fantastic and the world needs more of them. I do know that “revel bars” are an accurate name for these, because you will certainly take great pleasure or delight in eating them.

How could you not? A layer of chocolate and peanut butter sandwiched between two layers of chewy, sweet peanut butter and oats. There is no way you can go wrong with that.

A short post today, I know, but I think you should go make these and let the cookies speak for themselves.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Revel Bars

from It Bakes Me Happy


For the peanut butter layers

  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats

For the chocolate layer

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 12 oz (1 bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 14 oz (1 can) sweetened condensed milk (I used fat free, mostly because it was on sale)
  • 1 tsp vanilla


Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13 pan.

For the peanut butter layers: Cream together butter and 1/4 cup peanut butter in a large bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer, add brown sugar and continue to mix. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and oats. Add dry ingredients to peanut butter mixture and mix until completely incorporated. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the prepared pan so that it covers the entire bottom.

For the chocolate layer: In a medium saucepan, melt 1/2 cup peanut butter, chocolate chips, and sweetened condensed milk over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

Assembly: Spread the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter/oat mixture in the pan. Crumble the remaining peanut butter/oat mixture over the chocolate layer.

Bake for about 25 minutes or until the top is light golden brown. Cool before slicing and serving.
