Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

April 23, 2012

These bars are one of my favorite sweets to bake and are perfect for breakfast, snack or dessert. I usually make them when I am home but made them at school for my roommates to try. They were gone by the end of the weekend!

    I was just wondering if these freeze well once baked . It is a trick I use so that I only eat one at a time .If so how long do they last in the freezer.
