Delicious Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

These are the *best* bars and so easy to make, the trick to these is not to overbake, mine bake out perfectly in a 350 degree oven, second-lowest rack for 22 minutes, servings is only estimated --- add in 1 teaspoon cinnamon also if desired --- this was developed using full-fat peanut butter :)

Very very good! I cut down on the sugar...3/4 c. of each. Didn't seem to make a difference, still sweet enough! I also used 1/2 cup butter, and 1/2 cup butter flavored crisco. I baked in a 9x13 inch glass pan, and it took about 23 minutes until done. Very good texture and flavor. Thanks Kittencal!
