Since I made maple glazed french toast scones for my mom when we went up to visit this weekend, I had to make sure to make something for my dad so he wasn’t left out.
I’ve made these peanut butter chocolate chip cheesecake bars a few times before and knew that he would love them. Plus, I would finally get to share them with you!
These bars are easy to assemble and a lot quicker to bake than a regular cheesecake. A creamy layer of cheesecake is sandwiched between layers of chewy peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal cookie.
Just enough oatmeal is mixed in to give the cookie layers a slight nutty flavor while without making them too heavy. Peanut butter is added in because peanut butter is the perfect pairing to oatmeal cookies and cheesecake!
You really can’t go wrong with baking peanut butter oatmeal cookies and cheesecake together!
Throw in enough chocolate chips to add flavor but not too much sweetness, and you’ll have a hard time eating just one or two. . .
