Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper. Allow the parchment paper to hang over the sides to create a way to pull out the blondies from the pan with the parchment paper.Remove the banana peel and mash well using a fork. Measure the banana after it has been well mashed to ensure it is 1/2 cup.In a large bowl, using hand mixers, cream together the mashed up banana, peanut butter (do not warm up), honey, vanilla extract, and brown sugar.Beat until completely combined. Beat in the egg.Beat in the salt, baking soda, baking powder, and oat flour.To make oat flour, take oats and pulse them in a blender or food processor until they are in a flour like consistency. Make sure to measure the oat flour AFTER blending and not before or the amounts will be off.Beat just until combined.Stir in the peanut butter chips.Pour the mixture into the pan and make sure the mixture is even throughout the pan. If desired, sprinkle some extra peanut butter chips on top (it makes them look prettier, but is completely optional)Bake for 18-22 minutes or until lightly golden brown.Remove and allow the blondies to cool.
