Banana Oat Bars

I don’t know if you are like me in this way, but I always have great intentions when I buy bananas for the week. I typically buy about 4-6 of them in hopes that my kids will pack one for lunch, or snack on one after school. I typically use half of one for my morning smoothie, but towards the end of the week I notice the rest of them are uneaten. That’s when I take measures into my own hands and typically knock out a great banana bread (which the kids love), but this time I decided to make some delicious banana oat bars.

This recipe is super easy to make and yields a nice tray of oat bars.

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 pinch of cloves
  • 3 tbsp chopped walnuts

Start by mixing all of this together into a mixing bowl. It should be sticky, and be able to be easily formed.

Next, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and take the mixture and form into a rectangular shape.

Place into the oven and cook for about 20-25 minutes or until it is firm, but has a slight bounce to it. Let cool, then slice into bars.

These were a perfect use of ripened bananas and were a nice snack when heading out to work and school. Hope you enjoy!
