This recipe is adapted from my Food Now newsletter. These were SO good!

1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour, sifted
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 cup oats

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 13×9" baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar and peanut butter. Beat in egg and vanilla. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt; stir into peanut butter mixture, stirring just til blended. Stir in oats.

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring halfway.

Spread 3/4 of oat topping into prepared pan. Spread with melted chocolate. Dollop with remaining oat topping.

Bake 25 minutes. Cool completely and cut into bars.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d73/d24/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
