Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Oatmeal is a heart-healthy food. The fiber in oatmeal helps to remove the bad cholesterol from your system. Americans also do not typically eat enough fiber, and oatmeal adds fiber to the diet. Plus, chocolate is now known to be a great anti-oxidant. But the bottom line is -- these Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars are just plain good! My husband loves them and could eat the whole pan by himself.
