Peanut Butter Oat Bars

I am so thankful for pinterest. Otherwise I wouldn't come across wonderful recipes, like this one for ridiculously delicious peanut butter oatmeal bars from Pumpkin Honey.

Peanut Butter Oat Bars (adapted from here
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 13x9 baking dish.

Cream together butter and peanut butter. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and milk and mix until completely incorporated.

Slowly add in flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Continue to mix until smooth.

Pour mixture into prepared pan and smooth into an even layer (the batter is quite thick, so I lightly oiled a spatula to help spread it out evenly).

Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown, rotating the pan halfway through cooking time.

After bars are done baking, move to a cooling rack and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Let sit for a couple minutes for the chocolate to soften and then spread the chocolate over the bars. Let cool completely before cutting.
