Chocolate, Banana, Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

As I stated in a previous post, my family has been on a healthy eating kick. One thing that I have been really struggling with is my craving for chocolate. These breakfast bars definitely satisfy my chocolate craving without all the guilt.





I got this recipe from Katie at Chocolate Covered Katie. I have made a few changes but be sure to check out here recipe as well.

In a medium, bowl mash up your bananas then mix in the coco powder. Then set this aside

In another bowl, combine oats, honey, and peanut butter. Mix well then spread half of the mixture into the bottom of a pan lined with parchment paper. (The pan shown in the photo is 7in x 11in but any small pan of similar size will work just fine). The mixture is fairly sticky so a sprayed a spatula with non-stick cooking spay and used that to spread the oats and press them flat. It worked like a charm.




Next is the banana and chocolate layer. See all those banana chunks. You can combine the bananas and coco powder in the blender if you prefer a smoother texture.


Now you can add the rest of your oat mixture. I mixed in some raisins and walnuts which is completely optional but in my opinion, the bars taste so much better with them.

Once you are done, cover your pan with plastic wrap or slide it into a large ziploc bag and set them in the freezer overnight.
