Bryan's Breakfast Cookie Bars
Breakfast cookies made with oats, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. Naturally sweetened with applesauce and banana and quick to make!
banana, chocolate, oatmeal, oats, peanut butter
natural peanut butter
(I use Bob's Red Mill GF flour. You can also use regular wheat flour or blend oats to make oat flour– these bars are incredibly adaptable!)
chocolate chips (can add up to 3/4 cup to batter if you like extra chocolate),
plus extra to heavily sprinkle on top
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mash bananas and then add egg, peanut butter, applesauce, and vanilla.
In a small bowl, stir together dry ingredients: oats, flour, baking soda, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients, and then stir in chocolate chips.
Line 8x8 or 9x9 inch pan with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. Pour batter in pan. Bake for 20-24 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the pan comes out clean.
Enjoy warm or cool for at least 30 minutes to cut slightly neater bars. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days (for best taste) and/or freeze for 2-3 months!
