Peanut Butter Honey and Banana Oat Bars

Peanut Butter, Honey, and Banana Oat Bars
Yield: 16 two-inch square bars

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup mashed banana (1 medium banana)
1/3 + 1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
2 & 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats

For the glaze:

3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon honey

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease an 8″x8″ glass pan or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, mashed banana, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon until smooth. Stir in the oats until the mixture is well-combined.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan, pressing it firmly into the bottom. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden-brown. Let the bars cool completely. (You can speed this up by placing the bars in the freezer for about 45 minutes.)
Meanwhile, make the glaze. Whisk together the peanut butter, powdered sugar, milk, and honey in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled bars, then slice into squares. (Note: leftover glaze makes a stellar dip for apples, bananas, pretzels, etc.!) Store leftover bars in an airtight container at room temperature.
