Soft butter crust, topped with creamy peanut butter and blackberry jelly, set just under a crumbly sweet topping. These peanut butter and jelly crumb bars are perfect for back to school (or back to virtual school), dessert, or a mid-day snack. These are easy to make and loved by kids and adults.



3 cups all purpose flour

2/3 cup Swerve brown sugar substitute (or regular brown sugar)

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 sticks of butter

1 egg

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup jam/jelly


Preheat oven to 375°

In a food processor blend flour, brown sugar swerve, baking powder, and salt

Add butter and pulse until finely crumbled

Add one egg and pulse just until dough forms

Pack a little more than half (to 3/4) of the dough in a parchment lined cake pan (9×13)*

Spread crust evenly with peanut butter and then spread jelly on the peanut butter

Crumble the rest of the dough mixture evenly on top

Bake 35 minutes or until top is beginning to brown


I used a Wilton 9×13 rectangular cake pan

Using parchment paper sheets will help you lift the bars out at the end and cut them without dragging the knife through.
