Recently we've been making these delicious banana, apple and oatmeal breakfast bars and we absolutely LOVE them! They are really easy-to-prepare and only take a handful of ingredients. If you have a larger-sized family...you can easily double up the ingredients and make a larger batch. When I make them...I pour the batter into an 8" by 8" glass baking dish.
Healthy Banana and Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Bars Recipe
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups quick oats (oatmeal)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup applesauce
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 to 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
* Optional: 1/4 cup raisins
In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients together until well-blended. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Pour the batter into an 8" by 8" ungreased glass baking pan. Place baking pan into the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until done. It will look lightly toasted on the top. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut into bars and store them in an airtight container.
Note: Not only do these make a great healthy option for breakfast but they are also great for snacking on during the day. A LOT more healthier than eating junk food!
