Breakfast Oat Bars

This recipe comes from Bright Line Eater Karen, posted here with her permission. She shared this photo with a confession that she used a ruler to make sure they were perfectly divided. If you’ve been in BLE for any stretch of time I’m sure you can relate! 😉

Breakfast Oat Bars

  • Servings: Makes 6 Servings
  • Print

Each Serving Contains:

  • 1 Grain Serving
  • 1 Fruit Serving
  • 1 Protein Serving

Ingredients

Fruit Serving

  • 6 large mashed bananas (overripe if possible)
  • Any additional fruit add-ins if you like to reach your full 6 oz per serving 🙂

Grain Serving

  • 6 oz steel cut oats (dry)

Protein Serving

  • 12 oz peanut butter or other nut butter (she recommends a crunchy variety to add more texture, or swap out some of the nut butter for nuts of choice)

Condiments & Spices

  • Cinnamon, pie spice, ginger, vanilla, etc. according to your flavor preferences

Directions

  1. Mix mashed bananas, peanut butter and spices together and stir in steel cut oats.
  2. Pour in 12×12 pan (I spray with coconut oil or line pan with parchment paper)
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes or so (depends on the size of the bananas) until toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Cool and then cut into 6 equal pieces. I cut one serving into 2 pieces to make it easier to store. I wrap in saran wrap and keep in the refrigerator or put in freezer bags and keep them in the freezer.
  5. Pull out the night before from the freezer and put in the refrigerator.

Note: it took me forever to find a 12×12 pan. Before that I baked in a 9×13 at 350 and adjusted the time, longer.

    Can’t wait to try this. Thank you for sharing!

     
  2. Made these this morning! Thank you!

     
  3. Crazy when I went to print this out a HUGE smiley face was included which caused me to have to print out 3 pages and use lots of colored ink. Looking forward to making this soon.

     
  4. Can you make this with normal oats or does it have to be steel cut ? Thank you 😊

     
    • Hmm, not sure Louise. This is a recipe that a member of a BLE community shared. I would think so, because it’s basically the same as the breakfast rounds. If you try it, let us know how it goes!

       
      • Thank you I made them with normal oats and they turned out fine . Used them for my Ultra run and shared them . They went down a treat 👍🏻

    Do not like banana bread,, do these taste similar? Meaning is the banana flavour dominant?

     
  8. Cannot thank you enough for posting this recipe – it has become an all time favourite in our household, and hubby is very picky but LOVES them 🙂👌💪

    After making it the first time I hadn’t saved the recipe yet – and when I looked for it again I couldn’t find it anymore – my reaction of panic showed HOW AWESOME it is 😜

    But I asked you and you were so very kind to make it available again straight away. THANK YOU AGAIN for that!!! 💕

    Today I made it with rice and quinoa flakes and with mango, cannot wait to try that version 😊

    Thanks to you and to Karen for this absolutely yummy and practical breakfast (and lunch and dinner 😁)!!! 🙏
