My neighbor gave me this recipe. She found it on a Dole website. Haven't tried it yet but it sounds tasty!

These taste delicious! My only criticism is that the oat layers are very crumbly and not very flavorful. I would perhaps try adding a bit of brown sugar when I melt the butter to see if that helps it adhere better and have a nicer taste. The banana PB fudge layer has a lot of wonderful taste which does balance out the oats layer. Thanks for the post.
