Banana Breakfast Bars

The other day we wanted breakfast bars, but we were out of pumpkin and raisins so Rebekah whipped up this recipe. Equally as yummy as the other breakfast bars and just as good for you!

1 c. butter, softened
1 banana, mashed
2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. honey
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. flax meal
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 c. quick oats

Cream together butter, banana, vanilla, brown sugar, and honey; add eggs.  In a separate bowl mix flour, flax meal, salt, baking soda, and quick oats; add to the wet mixture. Pour in an ungreased 9x13 pan. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.  Let cool for 30 minutes before cutting.

To make this a bit healthier try adding more banana and less butter.  Or try half coconut oil and half butter.  Or add some applesauce to the mix.  

You really need to let this cool for the 30 minutes so you can cut and serve it without a mess. Unlike the other bars you can't grab and go with these.  You need a plate and a fork since they are a little soft.
