  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Beat butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar, and egg in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in flour, oats, 1/3 cup peanut butter, baking soda, vanilla extract, and salt until dough is well mixed. Press dough into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes; sprinkle with chocolate chips immediately. Let chocolate chips melt, about 5 minutes. Spread chocolate over cookie with a spatula or knife.
  4. Mix confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter, and milk in a small bowl until smooth. Add more milk if mixture is too thick to pour; drizzle over chocolate and allow to cool. Cut into bars to serve.

Very simply and delicious. I almost skipped the peanut butter drizzle at the end but decided to make it after tasting without..made all the difference! Only changes I made were wheat flour and ...

Great recipe! But note, chocolate chips don't melt to spreadable, not even after baking. I just baked them along on top the bars, cooled 5 minutes, glazed them and let cool rest of the way.

This is one of my favorites! My aunt makes them often and had given me the recipe, but I didn't have it on hand so I was happy to find it on here! I recommend doubling the peanut butter topping ...

Easy and delicious!

I added a lot more oats (what can I say? I love oats), but didn't add any of the chocolate ingredients. I still did the peanut butter topping. However, to the main batter I also added 1/2 tsp of...
