Ingredients

  • 1 cup ripe mashed banana
  • 1 cup creamy all-natural peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (plus 1/4 cup for top)
  • flaky sea salt, for topping

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Stir together the banana, peanut butter, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla until well combined.
  3. Next, stir in the cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and oats until well combined. Then, fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Transfer the batter to the parchment lined baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips on top and then use your fingers to lightly press them into the top of the batter.
  5. Bake the bars at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until set and a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle. Top the bars with a bit of flaky sea salt when they come out of the oven.
  6. Let the bars completely before slicing into 9 squares. Enjoy!
