Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Squares

Ingredients

rolled oats 2 1/2 cups
baking powder 1 tsp
cinnamon 1 tsp
salt 1/4 tsp
large bananas, mashed (about 1 cup) 2
egg 1
pure vanilla extract 1 tsp
honey* 1/4 cup

Who says you can’t have chocolate for breakfast? These chocolate chip banana oat squares are packed with filling fiber to help fuel you through your morning along with energizing B vitamins which help convert the food we eat into usable energy. Bananas sweeten up this recipe enough that you can even omit the honey and chocolate chips for a no added sugar version. It tastes so decadent, you’ll want it for dessert as well!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Pre-grease an 8 x 8 baking dish or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt using a whisk and set aside. 
  3. In another large mixing bowl, whisk together bananas, egg, vanilla extract, honey and almond milk.
  4. Combined wet and dry ingredients using a spatula until you achieve a uniform batter. Gently fold in chocolate chips (optional).
  5. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center. Allow to cool for 15-20 minutes before slicing into squares.
  6. Store in a container with a lid in the fridge or up to a week.

*For a no added sugar version of this recipe, you can omit the honey and chocolate chips
