Scott's Soccer Practice Bars


I cut this out of the back of the sugar sack, thinking I'd try it someday. Yesterday was cool enough for me to get interested in baking. I made an old fashioned rhubarb crisp with blueberries and these bars.

Since I have been cutting back or having no dessert lately, they will get frozen or shared. But I had to have a "small piece" of the bars to see if they were worth sharing and they are. I like them because they were not very sweet, a bit chewy with the oatmeal, a little bit peanut buttery, and not as chocolaty as I would have thought.

The ingredients on the cut out all start with Western Family, so I will spare you that.


½ c. butter

½ c. brown sugar

½ c. sugar

1 egg

½ c. peanut butter

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 c. flour

1 c. old-fashioned oatmeal

1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips


½ c. powdered sugar

2 Tbsp peanut butter

2 Tbsp milk


Cream butter and sugars. Add egg and peanut butter and mx well. Stir in baking soda, salt, flour and oatmeal. Press into a 9" x 13" baking pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and drizzle with icing. Cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.


I didn't think there was enough dough to press into a 9" x 13" pan but there is and it will also rise. Check at 20 minutes but mine was done by then. I had to add more milk for the drizzle, because I didn't really measure the peanut butter for the icing. And apparently there must be an art to "drizzling," much like rock painting, because my drizzle was more like a solid cover 
