Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

As promised, here is the recipe for the Banana Chocolate Chip Bars, courtesy of the book 500 Best Cookies, Bars & Squares.  This is another "banana use up" recipe.  I think I purposely buy too many bananas just so I can cook them up somewhere else.  This is pretty straightforward, I used mini chocolate chips because that's what I had on hand. 

Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars


1 C. packed brown sugar

3/4 C. butter or margarine, softened

1 egg

1/2 t. salt

1 1/4 C. mashed ripe bananas (about 4 medium)

4 C. old fashioned rolled oats

1/2 C. chocolate chips

1/2 C. raisins


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 pan and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, beat brown sugar and butter until smooth and creamy. Beat in egg, salt and bananas until well combined. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and raisins and mix thoroughly.

3. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Place pan on a wire rack to cool completely, then cut bars.
