Baked Oatmeal Bars
All you need are the first 3 ingredients for this recipe. It's easy, healthy and super delicious.
It's also Vegan and Gluten-Free.
I've included some optional add-ins that I feel enhance the flavor of these bars. The add-ins can be changed to a variety of items. You can add any nuts, dried fruit or spices you like. The recipe is flexible to what you enjoy or have in your pantry.
3 cups Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
2 Ripe Bananas
1/4 cup Natural Peanut Butter
Optional Add-Ins as shown:
1/4 cup Craisins (or any dried fruit)
1/4 cup Coconut Flakes
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/8 teaspoon Sea Salt
1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lightly grease or line a 9 x 9 inch square baking dish.
Mash the banana and peanut butter together til it's almost liquid-like. Stir in any add-ins you want. Add the oats and stir them in.
Put the mixture into the baking dish and pat it down til it's nice and flat. Add any toppings you might want to have. I topped with coconut flakes. Bake for 30-35 min.
Let the baking pan cool, then cut the whole thing into bars.
