White and Dark Chocolate Banana Squares

Ok so I keep saying how easy my recipes are right? Well this is another one. Not only it is easy but it is much better for you than the regular versions out there. It is super spongy and tasty and you would not even notice that is has whole wheat flour.

In this recipe I used both oat and whole wheat pastry flour but if you don’t have oat flour you can substitute with barley or simply use all whole wheat. You can also double the batch, which is what I always do because sweet things around my house hardly last :-)
