These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars are ones that I often take to a shower or dessert fellowship.
With the solid brown frosting underneath and white frosting drizzled on top, they are very elegant when cut into small squares. The two layers of frosting also make it a sweet bar, so small squares are the perfect size to provide many bars for a crowd.
