Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars taste like sweet caramel bars, soft and yummy.

Cream together: 1/2 c. sugar, 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1/3 c. peanut butter, 1/2 tsp. vanilla.
Add: 1 egg and 1/4 c. milk.  Beat well. 
Sift together: 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt

Add to creamed mixture and beat just until well combined.  Stir in 1 c. oatmeal. 
Spread on greased 13 x 9 in pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 mins.

Note: there is a frosting recipe, but either it's wrong or it's terrible.  I never use the frosting part of the recipe.  Here is the recipe, though - I suggest you ignore it.

Icky Wrong Frosting:

Sift together: 1/2 c. cocoa powder
Quickly stir in: 2 to 3 tbsp. boiling water, 1/2 tsp. vanilla.

Spread quickly over cooled bars in pan.
