Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Line 20cm square baking dish with aluminium foil, letting foil hang down over the sides of the dish; spray with cooking spray.
Stir oats, wheat germ, flax seed, protein powder, cinnamon and salt together in a bowl. Mash bananas in a separate large bowl and stir in 65g peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract, mixing well. Stir dry ingredients into banana mixture and spread into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Spread remaining 70g peanut butter over top.
Continue baking until lightly browned on the edges and set, 10 more minutes. Let cool in the dish and lift bars onto a work surface using aluminium foil as handles. Cut into bars, wrap in cling film and store in fridge.
You can use any type of protein powder. I use hemp because it is high-fibre.
If you use a very sweet powder, I'd suggest lowering the amount of honey.
