Peanut Butter Banana Oat Bread (Clean, healthy!)

At my job, we’re lucky enough to have tons of snacks. They’re not healthy snacks, but tons of snacks in general.

At least, though, they drop off a huge basket full of bananas every week. By the end of the week, there are always a few left over. Rather than tossing them sometimes I take them home to use for baking. (Hey, work…I hope thats ok).

b1.jpgIngredients:

  • 1-2 ripe bananas (Fun fact: if you have non-ripe bananas, you can put them in the oven for 30 min. at 350 degrees and they’ll brown right up!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut or oat flour
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (can use almond butter or any other nut butter if you’d like!)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Extra banana slices as you’d like! b3.jpg

How to:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a pan with coconut oil spray and set aside.
  • Mash bananas until they are a weird gross mush.
  • Add eggs and mix well.
  • Add peanut butter to the mixture and combine well. Add maple syrup and vanilla and mix well.
  • In a seperate bowl, mix together flour, oats and baking powder. Slowly, add the dry ingredients to the we ingredients.
  • Pour mixture into a prepared 8×8 pan to make breakfast bars, or a bread pan to make bread. (Note: bread will be thick! And you’ll need to bake it for an additional 5-6 minutes)
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
  • Let cool and eat!
