Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares



1 cup butter, room temp
1 cup dark/milk chocolate
3 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup mixed nuts
1 egg, whisked
1 1/4 cup whole milk
1/3 cup peanut butter


—Preheat the oven to 180°C. Butter a 20 cm x 30 cm baking tray and set aside.
—Chop the chocolate bar into small chunks. Mix the flour and baking soda in a large bowl.
—Cut the butter into cubes and incorporate into the flour mixture, creating a crumbly texture.
—Roughly chop the mixed nuts. Then add the nuts, oats and sugar to the butter/flour mixture.
—Take 1/4 of the dough and mix it in a separate bowl with the chopped chocolate. Set aside.
—Whisk the egg into the initial butter/flour mixture. This'll make the dough more moldable.
—Construct a ball-like form with the dough. Press the dough evenly into the buttered pan.
—This will be the bottom crust of your squares. Bake the crust for 15 minutes.
—In the meantime, whisk the whole milk and the peanut butter together. Whisk well.
—When the crust is done, take it out of the oven. Pour the whisked milk mixture on top.
—Then, distribute the dough with chocolate chunks in it evenly on top of everything.
—Bake the whole thing for about 20 minutes, or until it turns golden brown on top.
—Let the tray come to room temp after baking, then cut into 25 equal squares.
