Peanut Butter Squares

Made these today for a church picnic tomorrow... they look delicious! Very simple to make, but certainly not diet friendly, so fair warning!

1/2 C. granulated sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. butter or margarine
1/3 C. crunchy peanut butter (I used all natural)
1 egg
1 C. all purpose flour
1 C. regular oats (I used quick oats)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Peanut butter frosting:
Mix 1 1/2 C. powdered sugar, 1/4 C. peanut butter, 3 tablespoons milk, and 3 Tablespoon baking cocoa.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugars, margarine, peanut butter and egg. Stir in flour, oats, baking soda and salt. Spread in greased rectangular 9 by 13 pan. Bake until golden brown, about 17 to 22 minutes.

Cool, and frost with Peanut Butter Frosting.

Cut into 48 squares; 85 calories per square.
