These Bars are Bananas, B*A*N*A*N*A*S Fosters...

The next logical step from Caramel Apple Bar is obviously a Bananas Foster Bar, right?
Flaky shortbread topped with creamy, rummy, roasty bananas and sprinkle of crisp, nutty streusel. So yum, you gotta get you some.
Shortbread Base
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly butter a 9x13 baking pan.

 In a blender or food processor grind the oats into a fine(ish) flour. In a bowl mix the oats, flour, sugar, salt, vanilla and butter together to form a dough. Press into the bottom of a prepared 9x13 pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

 In the meantime prepare:

Banana Filling
4 ripe bananas,thinly sliced.
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup rum
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt.

 Mix the milk, brown sugar, rum, butter and salt together, stir in the sliced bananas and pour mixture over the partially baked crust.

Sprinkle evenly with:

Streusel Topping
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
3 Tablesp0ons packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon cold, unsalted butter cut into small cubes.

 Mix all ingredients together using a pastry blender fork until butter is thoroughly distributed. Sprinkle mixture over apple filling. Return pan to oven and continue baking for 45-55 minutes until streusel is crisped and brown

 Allow to cool and cut into 16-20 squares.
