Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal Bars

Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal Bars

Sandy

"This is the perfect breakfast for those days when you really want a muffin but need something hearty and healthy like oatmeal. For the best flavor use a very ripe banana. Any fruit can be substituted for the banana, including dried fruit (cranberries!) and nuts. The bars are great the next day, too. Once cool, put the bars into the fridge, then pop them in the microwave for a few seconds before eating."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can still make this with a just-ripe banana or any other low sugar fruit, but you'll probably need to add some brown sugar and vanilla to bump up the flavor.

So good! Tastes like banana bread, but a little more healthy ;-) Comes out with a cakey consistency, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm!

This was great. I added 2 bananas because they were small. This was perfectly sweet for my taste buds.

Great! delicious. I used spenda instead of sugar and low calorie margarine.

This recipe has become such a hit in our home! I make it every week. It's such a good hearty, eat while you're heading out the door kind of meal that serves our family well. I added fresh bluebe...

I added 1/2 cup of raisins and 1/2 tsp of Allspice. It came out yummy. I baked it for the prescribed 35 minutes at 375. I think maybe needs to go for 40 minutes.

I really liked this recipe. Instead of using bananas I added diced apples and I really prefer it over the bananas. Very moist and freezes very well.

I made this wanting a healthy snack for the morning without too much sugar. I followed the recipe pretty closely only adding some extra cinnamon to the mix. it was fairly bland except for the ch...
