Two Peas and Their Pod: Chocolate Glazed Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Chocolate Glazed Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Yesterday we went up to the Dewey/Pennington cabin just east of Kamas, Utah. We had a great time relaxing with the family! It is always a treat to visit the cabin.

Lincoln, Josh, and I went on a hike, Lincoln style...that means a drive:) We did get out to take some pictures and we took a few steps..ha!

The fall colors were so vibrant! I am glad we hit the Aspens at their peak!

Cow Crossing! Watch out!

I wasn't excited to see the snow on top of the mountain.
I am not ready for winter!

I made Prudy's Chocolate Glazed Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars and everyone loved them. Well, Josh wasn't allowed to have a taste because of the peanut butter, but don't worry he didn't starve. There was plenty of good food up there. The bars were great, how can you go wrong with a peanut butter and chocolate combo? Thanks Prudy!

Chocolate Glazed Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Adapted from Prudence Pennywise

1/2 cup butter

1/3 cup peanut butter, plus more for spreading on top

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1/4 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup flour

2 cups oatmeal-old fashioned or quick cooking

Chocolate Frosting:

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons milk

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine butter and peanut butter. Add sugars and mix well. Stir in vanilla, eggs, and milk. Stir in salt and soda, then add flour and oatmeal. Press mixture into greased 9 by 13 and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until puffed and browned. Spread hot bars with peanut butter-about ½ cup. Let sit for a few minutes while you make the frosting. In a small saucepan, combine butter and milk and heat on low heat until butter is melted. Stir in cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Pour over warm peanut butter and spread gently. Cut into bars and serve.

Your recipes look yummy! Being from Colorado I've seen a few Cow Crossing signs (Free Range/Open Range) but I still have NEVER seen any cows on the road!

I love those pictures Maria. It shouts Fall to me, and I am still waiting down here in FL. I want to go to a cabin so bad. A mountainy version of a B&B.

Those PB Bars look awesome!!!!

Those hills look gorgeous! Knowing me, I probably would have wanted to spend my time cooing at the cows. How cool you made Prudy's bars! I want to make those apple things she posted Friday....

What a beautiful, fun, fall trip. Your photos are just amazing, even the one with snow on top. But I feel the same way you do - so not ready to freeze and die. And I have got to try that recipe, looks like every thing we LOVE, sorry Josh.

Love the scenery out there Maria. Hiking outdoors is so much fun, the hardest part is making sure you don't stay out too late. Then again, if I had peanutbutter bars back home, I'd make sure I'm home on time :)

mooooo. i almost hit a cow once--the perils of living near a farm. :)
great-looking bars--they're like a soft and cakey peanut butter cup, which would be awesome.
