Peanut Butter Bars

When I found this Recipe over at Cheeky Kitchen, I knew it was fate. As a kid I lived for the days that they had peanut butter bars for dessert in the cafeteria.  And these are a yummy, relatively healthy version that tastes JUST LIKE THEM!

1 c. peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. Coach's Oats
3/4 c. whole wheat flour
1/4 c. white flour
1/2 tsp. soda
In a large bowl, cream together peanut butter, egg, butter and brown sugar until light an whippy. Add remaining ingredients, then press into a small cookies sheet. Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for exactly nine minutes. Don't overcook it! It might look a little soft and gooey, but it will set as it cools. Allow to cool before frosting & cutting into bars.

Whippy Cocoa Fudge Frosting

2 sticks butter, softened
4 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips just until barely melted. Using and electric beater/mixer, beat in the butter, then slowly add the powdered sugar and just enough milk to make the frosting a nice, spreadable consistency. Frost cooled bars. Allow frosting to set up for about 30 minutes before cutting. ENJOY!
