Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Love the taste of peanut butter but don’s always trust yourself to measure properly? Try chewing a piece of sugar – free gum while you’re cooking with foods you feel may be too tempting to handle . That way you’re unlikely to pop an unmeasured blob of peanut butter into your mouth. But you can still enjoy the food you love when just the right amount is used in recipe.

Serves 8 (2 each)

¾ cup quick oats
3 tablespoons reduced – fat biscuit baking mix
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup SPLENDA Granular
½ cup + 2 tablespoons reduced – fat peanut butter
1 egg, or equivalent in egg substitute
½ cup fat – free half & half
½ cup no- fat sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-9-inch cake pan with butter – flavored cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine oats, baking mix, baking powder, and SPLENDA. In a large bowl, combine ½ cup peanut butter, egg, half & half, sour cream, and vanilla extract. Add oatmeal mixture. Mix gently just to combine. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until lightly browned. Drop remaining 2 tablespoon peanut butter by teaspoon over warm top. Using a butter knife, carefully spread peanut butter over top. Place pan on a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Cut into 16 bars.
