Oatmeal Banana Bars with Chocolate Chips

So I have a lot of overripe bananas, and it looks like I have a slug infestation in my fridge. I was tired of banana muffins/bread and I also had a lot of oats (which I have this past year developed a huge obsessions for) so I stumbled upon this lovely recipe from Delish. It's slightly healthier, but not by much... I would take out maybe 1-2 tablespoons butter next time, as it was slightly oily when baked
Ingredients 1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
pinch of salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
2 mashed bananas
1 egg
1 cup (uncooked) rolled oats
chocolate chips, coconut flakes, nuts, anything!

DirectionsPreheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 8"x8" baking pan.

Using a large mixing bowl, beat softened butter and sugar until fluffy. Add mashed bananas and eggs; beat until smooth. Then mix in dry ingredients, scraping bowl occasionally. Fold in rolled oats and chocolate chips.

Spread batter evenly into prepared baking pan. Bake on center oven rack 25 minutes until golden brown.
