Peanut Butter Bars

I have loved these cookies for years. My mom's recipe (made lighter by me).

1/2 cup Smart Balance (softened)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp. egg whites or 1 organic egg
1/3 cup peanut butter (creamy)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1) Cream butter and gradually add sugars, mixing well. Blend in egg, soda, vanilla, and peanut butter.

2) Add flour/oat mixture to butter/sugar mixture and mix thoroughly. Spread in greased 13 x 9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly browned. Sprinkle immediately with 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels. Let stand for 5 minutes. Then spread melted chips evenly over cookies.

3) Combine 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter, and 2 to 4 tbsp. milk, mix well. Drizzle peanut butter mixture over melted chocolate. Cool and cut into bars.
