Peanut Butter Bars

Brian's birthday was last week and these delectable treats were his request for a birthday cake. I halved the recipe and it worked perfectly in a 9X13 pan instead of a cookie sheet. They have oatmeal in them, which not only gives the bar a great texture, but makes you feel like it might be slightly healthy for you (don't worry, they're not). Addicting and delicious, these peanut butter bars really deliver.
Peanut Butter Bars

1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 c. peanut butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups oats

Chocolate Frosting:
3 c. powdered sugar
4 Tbs. butter
4 Tbs. cocoa powder
4 Tbs. milk
1/3 c. peanut butter (or to taste)

Mix butter, sugars, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla. Add salt, flour, baking soda, and oats. Mix well and spread out on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 16-18 minutes. Cool completely and then frost. Enjoy!
