Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

I have been looking high and low for and easy, healthy breakfast bar recipe that my kids would actually eat.  I think I’ve found it!  My kids loved these, and so did I.  I thought they were delicious topped with some strawberry jam.  Some of my kids warmed them up and poured a little milk on top to create a sort-of baked oatmeal version.  And sometimes, we just ate them straight out of the pan.

Being a breakfast bar, they are not overly sweet, so if you prefer them sweeter, you’d need to add some extra sugar.  Personally, I think the less-sweet option is better for breakfast.  These are great for busy mornings when people need a quick grab-and-go breakfast.  Not to mention, you can never have too many recipes for using up old bananas.  We will definitely be making these again and again.

  7. I know that the recipe calls for quick oats but can you use old fashion oats? Would I use less if using the old fashion?
