Mel's Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip BarsSubmitted by: JBUCKIE
*Flour, white, .75 cup
Oats, 2 cup
Kellogg's Rice Krispies Cereal, 1.5 cup (1 serving)
Salt, .25 tsp (remove)
Nutmeg, ground, .25 tsp
Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp
Banana, fresh, 3 small (6" to 6-7/8" long)
Honey, .25 cup
Yogurt, plain, low fat, .25 cup (8 fl oz)
*Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, reduced fat, 1/4 cup
Vanilla Extract, 1 tsp
Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips, 1 cup
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment or foil, leaving a slight overhang on each of the long edges. Lightly coat the pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, rice cereal, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon, stirring well to combine. In a second large bowl, combine the banana, honey, yogurt, nut butter, and vanilla. Whisk together until the mixture is fairly uniform and smooth.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ones and stir until they come together. Gently fold in the chocolate chips. Transfer to the prepared pan and flatten down lightly with a spatula or your hands. Bake for anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. I baked mine for only 15-18 minutes because I wanted them soft like a cookie. If you want them firm and golden, continue baking until they are starting to brown on the top, more like 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the bars cool completely before removing from the pan and cutting into squares.
