Peanut butter oatmeal breakfast bars. A filling breakfast full of protein, fiber, and omega 3's ! They are gluten and dairy free!

Original Recipe here: http://joyfoodsunshine.com/lauras-peanut-butter-breakfast-bars/

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats (can use old fashioned but they will be chewier)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed meal
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons protein powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 bananas (ripe and mashed)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • peanut butter (More, for the top, about ¼ cup)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 square baking dish
  2. In a small bowl combine the dry ingredients (oats, almond meal, flaxseed, salt, cinnamon and protein powder if using), set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mash the banana. Add applesauce, honey, 2 TBS peanut butter and vanilla. Mix well.
  4. Stir dry ingredients into wet until combined. Spread mixture into the pan (should be moist but NOT soupy).
  5. Bake 20 minutes (should be slightly brown around the edges and top should be set), remove from oven and spread peanut butter over the top of the bars (I like a really thick layer of peanut butter but it’s to your own preference)
  6. Continue baking for 10 minutes more or until firm and lightly browned around the edges. At this point the peanut butter layer will have tiny little bubbles in it.
  7. Cool completely in the refrigerator and cut into 6 or 9 bars. Wrap each with plastic wrap and store in an airtight container in the fridge for a quick grab and go breakfast!
