1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup soft butter
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup (6-oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Peanut Butter Glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2-4 T. milk

Blend all ingredients except chocolate chips. Put in 9" x 13" pan. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Put back in oven for 2 minutes. Remove and spread melted chips evenly over bars (the back of a teaspoon works well for this). When cooled, pour peanut butter glaze evenly over chocolate. Spread glaze evenly. When cooled, cut into finger-like bars.

Peanut butter glaze: Combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter and 2 to 4 T. milk. Heat over medium heat until all are thoroughly combined. Add the milk until it is a "pouring" consistency. This does not work well in microwave; use stove.

Mom made these a lot. She served them when John Culver was campaigning for Congress and came to our house for a "coffee"!
