Banana Peanut Butter Chip Bars

A great way to use overripe bananas when you are not in the mood for banana bread. These Banana Peanut Butter Chip bars take 5 bananas and are good any time of day. You can make them healthier by subbing whole wheat or Keto Flour for the all-purpose flour, using applesauce or coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. Exchange the brown sugar for a brown sugar substitute like Sukrin Gold and use Keto Chocolate chips.

Peel and mash your 5 bananas, stir in brown sugar, oil, peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla until combined.

Add all of the dry ingredients and 1/2 of the chocolate chips. I’m using a chocolate and peanut butter chip mix.  Spread the batter in a 15″x 10-1/2″ pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Bake for 18-20 minutes at 350°. Cool before cutting. These bars can be kept at room temperature but will store longer in the refrigerator and they freeze well.

This makes a ton, I suggest cutting the recipe in half unless you’re planning on sharing them.
