1 stick real butter, softened
½ c. sugar
½ c. brown sugar
½ c. creamy peanut butter
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
½ c. quick oats
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips

½ c. powdered sugar
2 T. creamy peanut butter
2 T. milk

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugars and peanut butter. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt; stir into creamed mixture. Spread into greased 13 x 9 pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake 350˚ for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 15 minutes. Combine frosting ingredients; drizzle over bars. Cut while still slightly warm.
