Easy Crumb Bars

Is there any more classic of a flavor combination than Peanut Butter and Jelly? I mean, this stuff has been around since the beginning of time, and kids and adults all LOVE it!

This recipe is an easy crumb bar filled with a delicious peanut butter and jelly center.  I used Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for the peanut butter filling with some strawberry jelly that was in our fridge. You could use any jelly or jam that you have on hand – so pick your favorite and let’s get started!

How to Make Crumb Bars –

You’ll start by making the crumb base and topping. This is a simple mixture of butter, sugar, an egg + flour and oats. Press half of this mixture into a backing pan.

Spread some jam or jelly on top –
