The Boy has recently fallen back in love with peanut butter and jelly (PB&J) Yes, we Brits call it jam and it tastes a bit different over here but the principle is still the same. What ever you call it, the strawberry or raspberry varieties work best inside these delicious little beauties.
Peanut butter and jelly bars are essentially peanut butter flapjacks with a thick layer of jam in the middle. It makes a boring slice of flapjack really awesome. Once you try a slice, you will never want to eat a plain flapjack ever again.
The best thing about PB&J bars is that they’re so easy to make. They don’t take long to put together and they taste best straight from the oven. It’s a shame they taste best this way because it’s not hard to eat the whole tray. Yes, I ate several trays as I was perfecting this recipe. Each one was more jam filled than the last until eventually, they were perfect.
Needless to say that PB&J bars really are one of my best creations, ever! We can’t get enough of them and I’m baking them in place of our usual breakfast flapjacks every few days. They are just so handy for shoving in school or work bags and I have a tub full of them for snacking on my desk.
