I have a tasty recipe to share: peanut butter banana oatmeal squares. I found it on Pinterest last week and couldn't wait to try it out. Boy am I glad I got on it because these things are fan-flippin-tastic! I had one right out of the oven and it literally melted in my mouth because the peanut butter was still warm. I've had a few at room temperature which are good too, but I think I like them warmed up the best.
