Peanut Butter Banana Bars

This is another easy recipe to use when you have bananas that are going bad and you aren't in the mood for banana bread or banana cake. Just a few quick ingredients and you have a moist snack bar! Please note- these are NOT super sweet- but still yummy.

3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1/2 t salt
1 t vanilla
1 cup bananas, mashed
4 cups uncooked rolled oats
1/2 cup peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, salt, vanilla, bananas and peanut butter. Stir in the rolled oats. Mix well. Spread into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and cut into bars.
