Scott's Soccer Practice Bars

This recipe came from the back of a 25 lb bag of Western Family Sugar. Cameron and I whipped these up one evening for fun. I now know why Scott (whoever he is) calls this soccer practice bars! You need to go to soccer practice to burn off the cookies. We love oatmeal, we love chocolate, and we love peanut butter so you can see that these cookies don't look like much but they sure pleased our sweet tooth.

Soccer Practice Bars

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 cup old fashion oatmeal
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (I used 3/4-1 cup mini chocolate chips)

Icing--combine and set aside
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
2 Tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugars. Add egg and peanut butter and mix well. Stir in soda, salt, flour, and oatmeal. Press into a 9 x 13 pan.Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. (I actually mixed mine in like a chocolate chip cookie dough-oops). Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and drizzle with icing.

Cool completely. Cut into squares and serve. Makes 24 squares.

These are fabulous. I like the chips mixed into the batter. I've made them for soccer many many times and the children always beg for more. Very satisfying!
