Ingredients:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Frosting:

  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 to 5 Tablespoons of milk

Instructions:

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Using a non-stick spray, coat a large baking sheet.
  3. 2. With an electric hand mixer, cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar in a large mixing basin.
  4. 3. Combine the peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. To blend, whisk everything together thoroughly.
  5. 4. Mix in the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt gradually. Mix until everything is well blended.
  6. 5. On the prepared baking sheet, spread out the cookie dough in a uniform layer. (Because the cookie dough is sticky, spreading it out will take some time.) To help spread the batter out, I spray the back of a spoon with cooking spray.)
  7. 6. bake bars for 16 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven. They’ll be beautiful and golden.
  8. Remove the bars from the oven and set them aside to cool.

Frosting:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all frosting ingredients and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  2. Spread a thin layer of icing on top of the peanut butter bars. Squares should be cut off.
  3. Serve and have fun!
