  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or your favorite oil
  • 2 large ripe bananas mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup sub with honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats quick oats may be subbed but they will have less texture
  • 1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips or your favorite


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Place the peanut butter in a large microwave bowl and heat for 20 - 30 seconds until melted. If the coconut oil is in solid state, heat it with the peanut butter. If not, add it with the banana in the next step.

  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden brown and set.
  • Cool on a wire rack and cut into bars. Enjoy!



  • Pro tip: Use natural peanut butter that doesn't contain added sugar or salt, as this will allow you to control the amount of sugar and sodium. Creamy or crunchy peanut butter may be used.
  • Make sure you use ripe bananas. The riper the bananas are, the sweeter and more flavorful they will be, and the easier they will mash.
  • Baking time may vary depending on your oven. Check for doneness after 20 minutes and go from there.
  • Store bars in an air tight container at room temperature for 3-5 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
