This is one of my favorite recipes to make. Why? 1- it’s easy! 2- it’s healthy! 3- it’s delicious! Whenever I feel like I need something sweet but don’t want to bake something full of sugar, I’ll whip this up!

I almost always have these ingredients on hand, as they’re pretty much staples around my house.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

That’s it! No eggs, no flour, no sugar, no butter, no oil!

Yep, that’s it…just 4 ingredients!

Just a note about the peanut butter…for this recipe, I prefer to use the type on the left. It is creamy natural, no stir. It does have palm oil and some sugar – it’s in the middle of regular peanut butter and the kind with just peanuts and salt.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Using your mixer, mash up the bananas
  • Add in the peanut butter (I used creamy natural in mine)
  • Add the oats
    • If you want to use old fashioned oats, I’d suggest chopping them up in a food processor first
  • Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips

This recipe is very forgiving. Only have 3 bananas? That’s ok. Want to try blueberries instead of chocolate chip? That’s ok. Want to add milled flax seeds? That’s ok, too! You really can’t mess it up.

  • Scrape the mixture into your pan…like so:

Place in the center of the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 min or until toothpick comes out clean.

Honestly it doesn’t look a lot different after it’s baked, but the toothpick came out clean!

These are tasty both warm and cold, so it’s up to you how long you want to let them cool!

Personally, I am not very patient so I am digging in after 3 minutes!

If you are like me and cut them after only 3 minutes, they may fall apart but no worries, the taste is unaffected!

I like to cut these in squares, wrap with plastic wrap, and store in the refrigerator to have a quick and tasty breakfast on the go!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! Leave a comment or pin this post if you’ve tried it!
