Banana Oat Bars

Banana Oat Bars

I looked up recipes for banana bread, scones and muffins. I knew I wanted bananas as the key ingredient – what I ended up with was an oaty, doughy, chewy and naturally sweet treat :mrgreen:

I added raisins and chocolate chips to a portion of the dough – the rest I left plain.

Here is my recipe:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup dry oats
  • 2 tbsp. Promise light
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • 2 ripe mashed banana
  • 1 tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Preheat the oven to 400*. Mix first seven ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix banana and brown sugar together in a separate bowl. Alternate adding banana mixture and almond milk to dry ingredients. Mix until moist.

I then spread the dough out on a flat baking pan (covered with Silpat) and added the raisins and chocolate chips to one corner of the dough “rectangle.” I baked it for 10 minutes or until the bottom was just slightly brown.

I cut the dough into eight squares that are roughly 100 calories each.
