Peanut Butter Banana Bars

Is it just me or do bananas ripen in the blink of an eye?? If you feel like you can never get to them in time- don't fret! There are so many yummy things you can do with ripe bananas and usually with few ingredients! 

Super ripe bananas are showing higher antioxidant properties too so think twice before throwing them out! 

These only took 30 minutes start to finish and the texture is great! They’re gooey and warm.
