Oatmeal Cookie Bars with Peanut Butter Frosting

Hi all! Are you enjoying your week so far? It’s been quite warm the past couple days in the South- I figure one of the last times it’ll be warm until after winter. Can you believe it’s almost November? Crazy!

Today I want to share with you one of my new favorite desserts- Oatmeal Cookie Bars with PB Frosting. I’m on a cleanse right now, but we had part of a pan of these left over when I started it yesterday. Luke’s taken care of them for me. 😉 Even though these are sweet, chocolatey and peanut buttery, Luke loves them! Success!

Don’t they look amazing?!? Here’s the recipe! It was quite easy to make! 🙂


Ingredients:

2 cups oats

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup flour (I used whole wheat)

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 cup hot water

1/2 cup butter, softened or melted

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Frosting Ingredients:

1/4 cup soft butter

1/4 cup PB (I used half crunchy, half creamy)

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 tsp. salt

2-21/2 cups powdered sugar

4 tbsp. milk

Directions:
Mix bar ingredients together except chocolate chips. Press into a greased pan. Press chocolate chips into dough. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Cool. Mix frosting and frost bars. Cut into pieces and serve. Will last up to a week in a sealed container.


See? Super easy and sooo yummy!

  3. Found this recipe via your heart shaped cookies (which looked great, btw). These cookie bars are my favorite kind of dessert. Definitely tucking this recipe away 🙂
