These are amazing and delicious bar cookies. I always get SO many compliments when I make these. Be careful, they go FAST, despite the fact that this recipe makes so many!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and sugars.
  2. Mix in peanut butter, eggs and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt.
  4. Combine two mixtures together.
  5. Press evenly into a 15x10x2 cookie sheet (jelly roll pan).
  6. Bake at 350°F for 15-18 minutes (till golden brown).
  7. Mix the frosting ingredients together.
  8. Spread the frosting over the warm bars.
  9. Occasionally the frosting will be a little hard to spread. When this happens, I add either milk, or I microwave the frosting for 10-20 seconds and it is a lot easier to work with.

Wow! I've tried out a couple of peanut butter bar recipes and this one is the best, by far. They're chewy but not too peanutty and the chocolate frosting is just perfect.

Thanks for a great recipe! I love that they are made with stuff I usually have on hand. The bars are soft and not too sweet. I was afraid there would be enough of the frosting when I started spreading it, but a thin layer is plenty, as it is pretty sweet. Even my non-chocolate liking DD enjoyed these.
