  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg, 1/3 cup peanut butter and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Finally, mix in the rolled oats. Spread the dough evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are firm. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips in a single layer over the top. Let stand for 5 minutes, then spread to cover. Allow to cool. In a small bowl, mix together the confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter until smooth. Stir in milk one tablespoon at a time until a drizzling consistency is reached. Drizzle over bars when cool. Cut into bars.

The recipe is a favorite of mine with one exception. This recipe is only 2/3 of my recipe, which is the reason why everyone is having trouble filling a 13x9 inch pan. My recipe calls for 3/4 c. butter, 3/4 c. sugar, 3/4 c. brown sugar, 1 egg, 2/3 c. pb, 3/4 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 c oats, 1 1/2 c flower and 1 1/2 c chocolate chips. The frosting is the same though. Also, my recipe only bakes for 12 minutes. Half the time. They are delicious this way. They aren't undercooked. They are chewy and perfect. My friend at work says she doesn't even like peanut butter, but loved these.

We did not like these at all!

A tasty treat. All turned out as expected, sweet and chewy/crunchy, except this really doesn't fill a 9 x 13" pan. A slightly smaller pan might be good, if you have some weird size (9x9 or 8x8 would be a bit too small), or else fill about 2/3 of 9x13, which bakes fine in 20 minutes. I used margarine because I was out of butter, but otherwise followed recipe exactly. The drizzle is tasty and not too sweet - do make it!

I have made this so many times and it never lasts in my house for long. These are a favorite at my house.

Excellent! My peanut butter drizzle didn't come out that great...I think next time it will be just as good without it. I had to give away half of the pan because I was going to eat all of them myself. I found that it fit fine in a 13 X 9 pan and it was much easier to put in the pan when I used my hands to flatten it down instead of a spoon.

Boyfriend liked them. I thought they were too much sweetness for me (but i'm not a huge sweets fan). They went together quickly but weren't gobbled up like other recipes I've tried. I used a 9X13 pan, any thicker and the sweetness would have been overpowering for my tastes.

Really good! Spreading the dough in the pan was a bit of a pain but just because it's pretty thick. Using fingers and the back of a spoon worked for me. I followed the recipe exactly, except it took more like 30 to 35 minutes in the oven. Oh, and instead of drizzling the peanut butter topping, I spread it over the hardened chocolate so that every bite gets both the peanut butter and chocolate. Really yummy! My two-year old enjoyed them a lot! Thanks, Mandy, for a simple and tasty recipe. :)

Really good! We really enjoyed these. I cut the confectioners sugar down to 1/3 cup because my husband doesn't like the taste in general and he never even noticed I'd used it in the icing and frankly I kept searching out the peices with the most peanut butter icing because I thought they tasted the best so for those thinking of skipping it - I wouldn't. These are very good and a great way to make a bag of chocolate chips stretch!
