Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars #Recipe
At my house, we typically don’t make a big deal out of breakfast. My kids have been eating the same foods every day for breakfast….for years!
I’m not even kidding.
Losh eats oatmeal Every.Single.Day. If it isn’t waiting on him when he wakes up he asks “Where is my oatmeal?” Aybra eats a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and sometimes a bowl of cereal. And then Kaia will have a bowl of cereal, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or pop-tarts.
They are creatures of habit and easy to please. They may not be the healthiest options, but I pick my battles, and breakfast isn’t one I choose to fight.
The usual breakfast foods like pancakes and bacon or biscuits and gravy tend to be dinner foods around here.
But along came these Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars and changed breakfast.
These oatmeal bars satisfy every one of my kids’ wants in a breakfast food. It has oatmeal. It’s sweet. They are nice and soft like a sandwich and have peanut butter. Score!
Bonus: they are gluten free! (make sure your oats actually say gluten free as some oats aren’t gluten free)
If you don’t like bananas, you can substitute them for apple sauce, or even 1/4-1/2 cup of your favorite fruit jam/puree! There are so many ways to switch this recipe up. If you make this recipe, I’d love for you to tag me on Instagram @AdukeSchulist.
Are your kids creatures of habit like mine?
Would your whole family enjoy these oatmeal bars?
