Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

I love to go through my pantry and see what ingredients I have and create something.  On this day I wanted something fast and easy and with peanut butter in it.  I usually eat peanut butter one way or another almost everyday.  This time it was in a cookie bar.  This peanut butter bar is soft and chewy and as my kids would say "healthy" because there is oatmeal in it.  I'll let you decide that....but they are delicious!





OATMEAL PEANUT BUTTER BARS
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 6 ozs chocolate chips


Directions:

PREHEAT OVEN 350 DEGREES. GREASE A 15X10X1 JELLY ROLL PAN.  

BEAT TOGETHER BUTTER AND SUGARS UNTIL CREAMY. ADD EGG AND BEAT WELL. ADD PEANUT BUTTER AND MIX TOGETHER.  ADD BAKING SODA, SALT AND FLOUR TO BUTTER MIXTURE.  ADD VANILLA ND STIR IN OATS AND CHOCOLATE CHIPS.  SPREAD INTO PAN AND BAKE FOR 15 MINUTES.  AFTER COOLING, CUT INTO BARS.


These Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars are so easy and fast to make that in less than 30 minutes you will be eating warm, soft and chewy bars!
