Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Squares

I sure am having fun making these recipes I've pinned!  This one is from Gingerbread Bagels and it was a definite hit at our house.  I made it for dessert one night, but could be a breakfast on the go or a snack too!

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Squares

1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 large mashed banana
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Mix together oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

Add vanilla, egg, and milk; combine all ingredients well.  Add peanut butter and banana, mix well.  Pour into lightly greased 8x8 baking dish and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

There are 2 adults and 2 children at our house and we each had a good sized piece with about 1 1/2 leftover  and it didn't last until noon.  Great portion for a family of 4, but I would double it and bake in 9x13 and make some to freeze next time.

They were incredibly moist, just the way I like my brownies and cookies--not dry at all.  So happy to have found this recipe!  Notice there is no "after" recipe.  They didn't last  long!
