Kari's Banana-Peanut Oat Bars (Makes 30 bars)

Dry Ingredients:

1 cup oat flour (process 1 cup oats to flour in blender/food processor)

1 cup White Whole Wheat flour

1/4 cup partially defatted peanut flour (Trader Joe's brand)

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup turbinado sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking soda


Wet Ingredients:

1 cup plain soy yogurt (I used Wildwood Probiotic Soyogurt)

4 medium (ripe) bananas

7 Tbsp water

1 Tbsp flaxmeal

1 tsp vinegar

1/2 tsp vanilla


1/2 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.

Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Set aside.

Add wet ingredients to blender and blend smooth. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and blend with electric mixture, or by hand, until smooth. Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake 28 minutes.

Remove from oven, and while still warm sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Let chips melt, then spread evenly over surface with the back of a spoon. Let cool and cut into bars. Makes 30 bars.

Note: You may want to chill the pan in the fridge to set the chocolate on top.
