Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

I found this recipe in a Family Circle magazine years ago and I have probably made it 100 times. In fact, my kids told me that they were sick of it so the recipe disappeared for awhile. It’s now back and improved a bit! We added peanut butter chips the last couple times that we made it and it was a yummy addition. The bars are fast and easy and they are perfect to put in lunches because they are hearty and stay together well.

Preheat oven to 375* and grease an 8×8 pan. Beat sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in vanilla and milk.
