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)
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.
Combine dry ingredients into a small bowl (oats, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon).
In a larger bowl smash the bananas and mix in the peanut butter. When combined, add in the vanilla extract, egg, maple syrup, and milk. Mix until combined.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir.
Pour mixture into prepared dish and bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Top with melted peanut butter.
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?

Homemade Dog Treats
When your good boy is a great boy and needs a special treat, regular store bought treats just won’t work. So, gather these ingredients and make your favorite pup some delicious homemade dog treats.
These treats contain only 5 ingredients and come together within minutes.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup flax seed
2/3 cup broth
1/4 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients together. Add the broth and peanut butter, stirring until the mixture forms a ball of dough. If mixture is too dry, add more broth. Roll out the dough on a slightly floured surface, cut into desired shapes. Bake for 10 minutes, turn treats over, and bake an additional 10 minutes.
The best part about these treats is I always have the ingredients on hand. So grab a mixing bowl and your favorite dog shaped cookie cutters and treat your good boy – or girl – to these homemade dog treats.
What I lack in decorating skills, these treats made up for in taste. Rok (our husky) LOVES them.
