soft-baked peanut butter granola bars

Great snack for anytime. At first I couldn't decide if I wanted to make oatmeal raisin cookies or peanut butter cookies. I started playing with the recipe and ended up with more of a soft-baked granola bar. I love the texture of the banana chips once baked and they add a great flavor. With the base recipe you could add your favorites or omit anything you don't care for. Enjoy (: Southern Food With Flare
