It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over and the kids are heading back to school. These peanut butter and jelly bars make a great snack to slip into their lunch boxes!


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup strawberry preserves or jam
  • 1 quart strawberries


  1. Preheat oven to 375F and lightly grease a 9×13 baking pan.
  2. Cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, and stir well.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt and add to the peanut butter mixture. Stir.
  4. Spread into prepared pan and bake for 10-12 minutes until the center is barely firm.
