In a blender, blend together the wet ingredients (banana and orange juice) until smooth.
Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until combined.
Pour batter into an 8 x 8 in pan. (You could also bake these in a 9 x 13 pan for thinner bars–just shorten the cooking time.) Press down batter very firmly.

Serve warm or cold, with some sour cream, if you like.
