Chocolate Frosted Peanut Butter Oat Bars
Serves: 3 dozen
For the Bars
  • ⅓ C sugar
  • ½ C brown sugar
  • ½ C butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • ½ C peanut butter
  • 1 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 C oats
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
For the Frosting
  • 1 C confectioner's sugar
  • ¼ C unsweetened baking cocoa
  • ¼ C peanut butter
  • ¼ C milk, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray a 9x13 baking dish.
  2. In the bowl of stand mixer, cream together sugars and butter. Add in egg and peanut butter and beat until well-combined. Stir in flour, oats, baking soda, and salt to combine.
  3. Press dough into the bottom of prepared baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until just starting to turn golden brown. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.
  4. To prepare frosting: Stir together confectioner's sugar, peanut butter, and 3 tablespoons milk until creamy. Set aside a ⅓ C. Stir baking cocoa into the remaining frosting. Add another 1 tablespoon milk and mix until creamy. You may need to add another tablespoon of milk to reach desired consistency.
  5. Spread chocolate frosting over the top of cooled bars. Drop peanut butter frosting by tablespoon full over the top of the chocolate frosting. Swirl peanut butter frosting with a knife to create a marbled effect.
  6. Allow frosting to set and cut into bars.
