Peanut Butter-Banana-Oat Bars

I originally planned these as breakfast bars, but I ate them more as anytime-bars; they work just as well as breakfast, a mid-morning or afternoon snack, or a not-too-sweet dessert.

The Ingredients:
3 c rolled oats
1/2 c peanuts
1/4 c whole wheat pastry flour
1 t salt
3/4 t baking powder
1/2 t cinnamon
2 bananas
3/4 c almond milk
2/3 c peanut butter
1/3 c brown sugar
2 T ground flax
1 t vanilla
optional: 1/2 c chocolate chips

The Process:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.  
  2. Stir together oats, peanuts, flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.
  3. In a food processor or blender, mix remaining ingredients (EXCEPT chocolate chips) until smooth.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry, and stir until combined.
  5. Spread mixture in an oiled 9x13 pan, and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
  6. Sprinkle with chocolate chips if using.
