These soft and chewy Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Bars are perfect to make ahead and grab for a quick breakfast or snack! They’re freezer-friendly, super easy to make and naturally sweetened with honey and bananas!



  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk (or any kind)
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • optional: 1 banana, cut into 16 slices, for topping & peanut butter for drizzling


  1. Prep & mix: Preheat oven to 375F. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper. Mash bananas well in a medium sized mixing bowl until no chunks remain. Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl (except optional sliced bananas) and mix thoroughly. 
  2. Bake: Pour mixture into the prepared 8×8 pan. Optional: Top with sliced bananas in 4×4 rows and press them slightly into the batter. Bake in the preheated oven for 23-26 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  3. Serve & store: Let the bars cool for 5-10 minutes, then remove from the pan using the parchment paper. Place on a cutting board and let cool for a few more minutes, then use a sharp knife to cut into 8 bars. Drizzle with melted peanut butter if you want. Keep these bars stored on the counter or in the fridge in an airtight container or individually wrapped, for up to 5 days. They may start to get stale around day 4, but they are still good to eat if you want.
