Banana Oat Cookie Bars

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Angel1205

I tried playing around with a few recipes, and this is the one that worked out the best for my family. It's a light cookie; I found that making it into bars worked better for me, since I only had one hand and could not spoon them onto a cookie sheet. I also used a food processor to mix the batter to make it quicker and easier to do while holding my daughter. :)

I made these at about 4 in the afternoon and they were gone by bedtime! My family loved them. A couple of things I did different. I baked them in the 13x9 pan, but it took 20-25 minutes to bake them rather than just 10 as the recipe states. I also sprinkled the top with chocolate chips before baking.
