I love when I can feed my family healthy, nutritious meals. I love it even more when they actually like those meals. This is one that they gobble up every time I make it.
This was actually a cookie recipe that I heard Sam Schuerman share on one of her family vlog videos. BUT, I thought, it’s relatively healthy so why not turn it into a breakfast bar? It’s an improvement over Poptarts and other chemically laden options. It’s also super easy and I almost always have these ingredients on hand.
So, let’s get on with the recipe, shall we?
2 cups Quick Oats
3 smashed bananas
1/2 cup chocolate chips (more if I’m feeling YOLO)
Mash bananas and combine ingredients. Stir a bit with a spoon and then finish combining ingredients by mixing together with your hands. (I don’t know a better way to explain this- sorry.)
Press into pan and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Watch closely. This is the bar after baking. (Ignore missing corner. Had to “taste-test”)
Yummy served with coffee or milk. Or a mix of both, like I prefer!
