Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

*These are just like those peanut butter bars with chocolate frosting that you used to find in your elementary school cafeteria! Yum!

3/4 C. butter, softened

1/2 C. sugar

1/2 C. brown sugar

1 egg (large)

2 tsp. vanilla

3/4 C. creamy peanut butter

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 C. flour

1.5 C. oats

Frosting: 1 C. milk chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 8x8 glass pan13x9x2 inch pan. Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg, vanilla, and peanut butter and beat until light and fluffy. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Press mixture evenly into pan and bake 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. (Note: Will be underbaked.) While still warm, evenly distribute chocolate chips. When chips have melted spread into a thin layer.


  1. When you said these are like the ones your school used to serve I thought I would faint. I loved those and have been searching for how to make them. I can't wait to try these!

  4. I have craving these forever. I almost made them yesterday, but the recipe I had found had powdered sugar for the frosting, and I didn't have any! I'm so excited yours doesn't!! I'm SOOOO making these!

  5. My family loved these! I am making them again today, so thanks a bunch! And they do taste like the ones I remember.


Thanks for your comment!

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
