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! 🙂


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

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!
