Peanut Butter  Oatmeal Bars

These peanut butter oatmeal bars are rich and hearty peanut butter cookie bars packed full of oatmeal, and topped with more creamy peanut butter and a rich chocolate frosting - perfect for a crowd!


2 1/3 cups old fashioned oats 1 1/2 cups flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 cup creamy peanut butter 1 cup butter (softened) 2/3 cup white sugar 1 1/3 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 1 tsp vanilla 1/2 tsp salt For topping the bars: 1 cup peanut butter 1/2 cup butter 6 TBS milk (whole or 2%) 4 TBS cocoa powder 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

These bars start with a peanut butter oatmeal cookie base. Its spread out thin into a rimmed cookie sheet. You’ll bake them until the edges just start to turn golden and the middle is no longer doughey.  They keep cooking as the pan is cooling so you don’t need to worry about if they look a little underbaked right when you pull them out – that way the edges won’t be too dry and overdone.
