Who doesn't love peanut butter and banana in a breakfast bar? So delicious and a wonderful way to start off your day! They were chewy, just how I like a breakfast bar to be, yet crispy with the Banana Chips on top. This recipe said that it makes 12, but that seemed a little skimpy for a breakfast, so I cut mine into 6. I think that they would make a great snack to pack for the kids too!
