Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 milk
1 cup flour
1 cup oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 bag chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13×9 inch pan.
Beat butter & peanut butter until well-creamed. Add sugar and continue beating until light & fluffy. Add egg, milk & vanilla and beat to incorporate into fluffy peanut buttery goodness.
Add flour, oats, baking soda & salt – slowly. Beat until well-mixed & smooth. Add 2/3 bag of chocolate chips.
Spread mixture evenly in your greased pan. It may be a bit thick so spread carefully.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven.
Spread remaining chocolate chips across the surface while still hot. When the chocolate has softened/melted, after a few seconds, spread evenly.
Let cool & allow chocolate to harden before cutting into bars.
