  • For crust, in a very large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Beat in the brown sugar, vanilla, baking soda, and salt until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in the oats and as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour (mixture will be crumbly). Reserve 2 cups of the oat mixture. Press remaining oat mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan; set aside.
