Scioto Hills Peanut Butter Bars

The recipe for these luscious bars came from a Christian camp that our church supports, in southern Ohio. They are wildly tasty!

Frosting recipe follows

Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a stand mixer, combine butter, both sugars, egg, vanilla and peanut butter until smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine flour  baking soda, salt and oats. Add to wet ingredients, and beat only until just combined.
Press into an ungreased 9x13" pan. Bake 15 minutes, until edges are light golden brown. Don't overbake.
