Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugars until craamy.

Step 3

Add egg, peanut butter, baking soda, salt and vanilla. Mix well.

Step 4

Add flour, oats and nuts. Mix in well.

Step 5

Spread mix evenly into pan, and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 6

Take out of oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the top. As they melt, spread with a knife all over the top. Set aside to cool.

Step 7

In a medium size mixing bowl add confectionary sugar, peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix until smooth, adding the last tablespoon of milk, if needed, to make it creamy but not runny.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


This one sounded wonderful to me, but didn't turn out to our tastes. Something about the texture of the old-fashioned oats and too many pecans...along with not being sweet enough or peanutbuttery enough. I think maybe if the oats and nuts were ground, and some honey was added, it may be improved. This did taste like a healthy snack bar, so still may appeal to others as is. I used butter and Splenda for the white sugar. Freddy Cat says thanks for the sweets! Made for the Billboard recipe tag game.
