  • In a mixing bowl, beat together the peanut butter, brown sugar, and butter with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract, then the banana. Stir in the oats, flour, wheat germ, and baking soda until completely combined. Spread in prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set and lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan on wire rack before cutting into bars.

Cook's Notes

If you are not a banana fan, substitute 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce for the banana.

When I don't have wheat germ, I use 2 tablespoons flax seed meal.
