Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mash bananas and set aside in a large mixing bowl.
In a small bowl melt 1 C peanut butter with 1/4 C coconut oil in microwave for approximately 30 seconds, stir well and add to mashed bananas.
Add egg, baking powder and honey, blend on low with a hand mixer.
Stir oats and chocolate chips into batter by hand.
