These strawberry peanut butter bars will take you straight back to childhood. Chewy peanut butter oat cookie layered with fresh strawberries and topped with more peanut butter cookie crumbles.
When it bakes, the strawberries become gooey, mirroring a jelly. Sooo, basically these are the adult version of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. If that doesn't make you happy then, well, I tried.
I personally wasn't huge on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a kid; but if they tasted half as good as these I probably would have been eating two a day. I basically ate two of these strawberry peanut butter bars for a few days until they were all eaten up, so that says something.
These are also great because you can make them even when strawberries aren't at their peak. This is because when you bake strawberries, their natural sweetness comes out, so they're still fantastic.
If you're in a strawberry groove, I also highly recommend my fresh biscuit strawberry shortcakes.
