Place the butter in a medium pan with the maple syrup and melt over a gentle heat.
Stir in raisins and remove from heat.
Add the bananas and mix well.
Add the oats and stir until all the oats have been coated.
Spoon the mixture onto an 11 x 7 inch non-stick jelly roll pan and level the surface with a potato masher for ease.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 10 minutes until the top is just beginning to turn a pale golden.
The mixture will seem somewhat soft.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before cutting into 12 bars.
Remove from pan and allow cooling completely. (If you like the bars to be a bit dryer, leave them out uncovered for a day.)
