peanut butter-banana oat snack cake
2 cups flour
½ ts baking soda
½ ts baking powder
½ ts sea salt
1 cup old fashioned oats
12 TB (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted & cooled
8 ounces cream cheese room temp.
1 and ¼ cup peanut butter (not oily peanut butter)
2 ripe bananas
1 cup light brown sugar, not packed (loose)
½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray with non-stick spray or generously butter a 9 x 13 pan.
In small bowl, whisk all dry ingredients and the oats together; set aside.
With electric mixer, or by hand, mix butter and cream cheese together until smooth.
Add in sugars and beat until thoroughly combined.
Add in eggs and mix, then add in the bananas and mix till all combined.
Then by hand add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
Pour batter into well-greased 9 x 13 pan.
Bake about 25-30 minutes; mine was done at the 25-minute mark.
You’ll know it’s done by the light golden edges.
Definitely check the cake at the 20-minute mark.
Let this cool at least 15-20 minutes before slicing.
