Peanut Butter Bars With Chocolate Fudge Frosting
from Brooke at Cheeky Kitchen
Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Bars
1 c. peanut butter
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!
Remember when I had Melissa on from Krema and Crazy Richard's Natural Peanut Butter? Well, when they sent me some of their peanut butter, I got right to work in my kitchen. This is the Crazy Richard's brand.
This is the Krema brand.
All N.A.T.U.R.A.L baby!
The ingredients. I love how there are oats, natural peanut butter and whole wheat flour in these. That makes them totally healthy, right?
Mix all of the wet ingredients together.
Next, add the dry ingredients.
Press into a small cookie sheet. I used my sheet that is half the size of my regular cookie sheets. Otherwise known as a quarter sheet pan.
Do not overbake. These are supposed to be moist. I cooked mine until I could just barely see it browning on the top.
The whippy cocoa fudge frosting ingredients.
Oh, la, la!
These are easy and fast to put together for an impromptu summer party or picnic outside.
The folks at Krema and Crazy Richard's Natural Peanut Butter would like to do a giveaway for my readers.
Here is the deal:
Go to their blog. In your comment on my blog, state what your favorite "Sammy of the Week" from their blog would be and why. There are many to choose from, so good luck. They want three winners...how can I argue with that? Each winner will have two jars of natural peanut butter sent to them. One creamy and one crunchy.
The giveaway ends Monday night at 11:59 pm.
