ingredients in peanut butter banana oatmeal bars


Instructions :

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius). Line a square baking pan of 9 inches in diameter with parchment paper, leaving a sufficient amount of overhang on the sides to facilitate the removal of the bars from the pan. Put aside for later.


  • Create a smooth paste by mashing the bananas in a large basin or in the bowl of your stand mixer.
  • To incorporate the remaining ingredients, beat or whisk them in the order that they are stated using medium speed. Although the batter will be somewhat thick, it will still be pourable.
  • Make sure the mixture is distributed evenly in the pan that has been prepared, and then bake it for 25 to 28 minutes, or until the centre is set (it will still appear to be rather soft!).


  • After removing from the oven, allow the pan to cool at room temperature for thirty to sixty minutes for the pan.
  • Next, put the pan in the refrigerator for one hour, or until it has reached the desired temperature. When the bars have not been cold, it is difficult to cut them into pieces.
  • Through the use of the overhang on the sides, remove the bars from the pan, and then cut them into bars. I do drizzle melted peanut butter over each of them occasionally, but that is completely optional.


  • (It is important to note that the parchment paper is always slightly damp since it has absorbed part of the moisture caused by the bars.)
  • Bars that are left over can be stored in the refrigerator for up to ten days if they are properly covered.



Notes :

  • Instructions for Freezing: Place squares in a container that is suitable for freezing and position them in single layers between sheets of parchment paper. Freeze for up to three months.
  • Defrost in the refrigerator for a full single day.

  • You are free to use whatever nut butter (peanut, almond, or cashew) that you desire, regardless of whether it is natural, homemade, or in a processed form.
  • When I first made these bars, I used to use one egg for the applesauce. However, I find that the flavour of these bars is enhanced when they are made using applesauce.
  • Alternatively, you may use an egg or even a flax egg alternative. Both of these options are options.
  • First, combine one tablespoon of ground flax with three tablespoons of warm water. Then, let the mixture sit for ten minutes so that it can “gel” up. Rather than using applesauce or eggs, you can use the “flax gel” for them.
    Use oats that have been certified as gluten-free in order to guarantee that the bars are gluten-free.
  • It is possible to omit the chocolate chips or substitute them with peanut butter chips, chopped nuts, or raisins.
  • The chocolate chips are optional. Alternately, you might utilise a combination of any of those add-ins.
  • To ensure that the bars are vegan, use chocolate chips that do not include dairy and milk that does not contain dairy.
  • If you want to make sure that these bars are gluten-free, you should make sure that the oats you use are certified as gluten-free.
