Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars

I was intrigued by this recipe just for the name!  I don’t know what school was serving these bars but man I was missing out!  These were DELICIOUS with a big capital D!  The peanut bar and oatmeal combo is great.  The frosting was so delicious!  I think I want need to make a chocolate cake and drizzle the frosting on top!
 


Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars

1 1/2 cup Flour
1¼ tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Baking Soda
¾ cup Butter
¾ cup Sugar
¾ cup Brown Sugar
1 ½ tsp. Vanilla
3/4 cup C Creamy Peanut Butter (split)
2 Eggs
1 ½ cup Quick Oats

 
 
Frosting:
3/4 cup peanut butter-whipped till fluffy and light in color
Then,
½ cup Butter (1 stick)
3 ½ cup Powdered Sugar
2 T Cocoa
¼ cup Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt and set aside. In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, sugars, 3/4 C peanut butter, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually add dry ingredients.  Then stir in the oats. Spread onto a greased 11 x 15 Jelly Roll Pan (cookie sheet). Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes.  

*When I was spreading it I didn’t think it would fit the pan.  It will make a really thin layer in the pan but trust me when it bakes it gets all fluffy.The frosting is a two step process. First, whip  ¾ cup Creamy Peanut Butter until it becomes lighter colored and fluffy. Carefully spread the whipped peanut butter over the pan cookie.

* Helps spread better  if the bars are barely warmThen, add butter to a small sauce pan and melt the butter. Add the milk and cocoa. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Heat just until boiling. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Then, gradually add the powdered sugar. Stir until thickened. Pour immediately over the peanut butter and gently spread over the cookie. Cool completely, and slice into bar cookies

 
My Notes:
I wouldn’t change a thing, except maybe make an extra pan!
