2. Grease the baking dish with a paper towel dipped in shortening.

3. Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt in the small mixer bowl. Stir with a spoon and set aside.

4. Combine butter or margarine, brown sugar and peanut butter in the large mixer bowl. Beat on medium speed until well mixed, stopping the mixer and scraping the bowl several times.

5. Add the flour mixture. Beat on low speed until well mixed (the mixture will be crumbly), scraping the bowl several times.

6. Spread the mixture evenly in the pan and press firmly with a spatula or your hands.

7. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and the edges pull away slightly from the baking dish. Remove from the oven and place the baking dish on a wire rack to cool.

8. When cooled, use a metal spatula and spread the top with a thin layer of chocolate frosting. Place in the refrigerator about 30 minutes to set the frosting, then cut with a table knife into squares.
