Reese's Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Bars

1 1/2 sticks butter
2 c light brown sugar
1/2 c creamy peanut butter
2 eggs, room temperature
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 c flour
1 c old fashioned oats
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 c Reese's peanut butter baking chips
2 cups Reese's miniatures, chopped or Reese's minis

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9x13 pan.
Cream butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Add peanut butter and continue mixing.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each egg. Add in vanilla.
Combine flour, oats, baking powder, and salt in a small mixing bowl.
Add the flour mixture slowly stirring until well combined.
Stir in the peanut butter chips.
Spread 2/3 of the dough on the bottom of the pan. Top with Reese's minis or chopped miniatures.
Drop the remaining dough on top by the teaspoon. It doesn't have to be perfect and it won't cover all the Reese's.
Bake for about 30 minutes. Let cool completely and then cut into bars.

I found these on Pinterest and made them for the Monday night study. Delicious!
