Peanut Butter & Fruit Spread Bars

RECIPE DESCRIPTION:

PB&J is a fan favorite, but Peanut Butter & Fruit Spread Bars are what you’ll lie awake thinking about at night! Buddy Fruits Organic Concord Grape Fruit Spread gives you all that wonderful grape flavor because organic grapes are exactly what you’ll find in our Organic Concord Grape Fruit Spread!

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature, plus more for greasing
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 extra large eggs at room temperature
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1½ cups Buddy Fruits Organic Concord Grape Fruit Spread
  • 2/3 cups peanuts, chopped 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with the butter.
  2. In an electric mixer or with a hand mixer, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed until it is combined.  
  3. With the mixer on low, add the vanilla, eggs, and peanut butter. Mix until combined.
  4. With the mixer still on low slowly add in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until just combined.
  5. Spread about two-thirds of the dough into the prepared pan.
  6. Squeeze Buddy Fruits Organic Concord Grape Fruit Spread over the dough. 
  7. Crumble the remaining dough evenly over the layer of Buddy Fruits Organic Concord Grape Fruit Spread. The dough doesn’t need to fully cover it since it will spread as it bakes.
  8. Cover the top with the chopped peanuts.
  9. Bake for about 45 minutes (can depend on your oven) or until golden brown.
  10. Once it cools, cut into squares and enjoy!
