Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Ingredients:

Bars:
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup peanut butter
    • 1/2 cup butter, softened
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
Peanut Butter Frosting:
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preparation Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add the egg and mix well.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, and oatmeal and mix until well combined. Press into a 9×13 baking dish sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Mixture will be wet.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before frosting.
  • For the frosting: Combine the butter, peanut butter, and vanilla in a medium sized bowl and beat until fluffy. Add the powdered sugar and add the milk gradually until you reach the desired consistency. You may not need it all.
  • Frost cooled bars. The frosting makes a thin layer for a thicker frosting you can double the frosting.
