Jamie's Toasted Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
 
Glaze
2 Tbsp cookie butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp water
 
Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add oats and cook, stirring occasionally, until toasted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; place on a plate lined with paper towel to cool slightly.

Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter, peanut butter and sugars in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Reduce speed to low; gradually add flour mixture and beat just until incorporated. Fold in toasted oats and chocolate chips.
Press dough evenly into prepared baking dish and bake 14 to 15 minutes, until edges are golden. Cool bars completely in pan on a wire rack.
 
For the glaze, place peanut butter in a small bowl and microwave until melted, about 30 seconds. Whisk in powdered sugar and water; drizzle glaze over cooled bars and let set.
