Triple Layer Brownie



Triple Layer Brownies
1 cup quick or old fashioned oats
1/2 cup chopped salted dry roasted peanuts
1/2 cup (3.5 ounces)  brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon soda
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 pkg (18-20 oz) fudge brownie mix (plus ingredients to make brownies)
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Additional chopped peanuts

1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9 x13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine oats, peanuts, brown sugar, flour and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Add melted butter: mix well. Press oat mixture into the bottom of pan. Bake for 8 minutes. 
2. Prepare brownie mix according to package instructions. Spoon batter evenly over crust. Bake 24-28 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
3. Combine chocolate chips and peanut butter in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high 1 minute; stir until smooth. Spread mixture evenly over cooled brownies. Sprinkle with additional chopped peanuts. Cool until chocolate mixture is set.

This delicious brownie recipe comes from Pampered Chef. It makes a thick, rich bar that is perfect for sharing. I did not use a brownie mix, I just used a favorite 'easy brownie' recipe--I will post it soon. I don't often purchase brownie mixes, but I always have sugar, flour, cocoa, eggs and butter on hand.

I never thought of adding peanuts to brownies. I usually stick with traditional walnuts, or even pecans. I've made a few of your other brownie recommendations, so will have to give this one a try!

Oh man, yum! I love the oats in this recipe, but I'll skip the nuts. Looks great!

These look fabulous! You can go wrong with a brownie, but when you add oats too! You have my attention :)
