- 3 large ripe bananas, 14-16 ounces
- 2 cups rolled oats, gluten free
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter, all natural
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup chocolate chip*
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 350 F and grease a quarter sheet pan with cooking spray or coconut oil.
Place bananas in a large bowl and mash with the back of a fork until they are broken down.
Add oats, peanut butter, chopped walnuts, chocolate chips, vanilla and cinnamon.
Stir everything together until all of the ingredients are well combined and you have a nice thick batter.
Transfer the batter onto the prepared baking sheet and pat done until it's pushed into the corners, along the sides and even on top.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until they are fragrant, lightly browned on top and set through.
Cool completely. Slice into 16 bars by making one vertical slice and seven horizontal. Enjoy!
