peanut butter banana oatmeal bars



peanut butter banana oatmeal bars

my healthy oatmeal bars have absolutely no oil or butter and only 1/4 cup of brown sugar in the entire recipe. they taste incredible and are super moist…. in fact they tasted exactly like banana bread the next day!

you can play around with different add-ins, based on your taste preference. i added some dried fruit and nuts, but i think chocolate chips would be a yummy addition too! i made mine with raisins and walnuts. perfectly healthy and delicious combination. 🙂

(categorized under granola & healthy stuff)

makes 16 small squares

  • 2.5 cups whole rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (regular or soy milk would be fine)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup add-ins (raisins, walnuts, craisins, peanuts, choc chips, etc)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350.  Grease 8 x 8 pan w/ cooking spray & set aside.
  2. Mix together oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. Add in the milk, vanilla, and egg.  Mix together until evenly combined.
  4. Add mashed bananas, peanut butter, and add-ins.  Stir well.
  5. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 20 minutes.  Cut into bars and enjoy!

*these bars can easily be made vegan using a “flax egg.” mix 1 tbsp ground flax w/ 3 tbsp warm water and let it sit for 10 minutes while it “gels” up

ps: give these healthy bites a try too! 😉

    New recipe to try. I still have lots of ripe bananas which I have now frozen.

  2. They looks and sound incredible, not forgetting their wholesomeness.

  3. Yes, these look great! Adding them to my recipe queue 🙂

  4. How much whole wheat flour –it’s missing…

  5. I just put mine in the oven! I used a ‘flax egg’ and applesauce instead of bananas. Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to try them!
