Ingredients

  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet ingredients:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix together oats, oat flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, add the mashed the bananas and whisk in the eggs, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla, stirring until well-combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients in to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let the pan sit for 5 minutes to cool, then remove the parchment paper with the bars from the pan and allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Slice into 16 square bars (or 9 larger bars).

Notes

  • You can purchase oat flour at many grocery stores, or make it yourself at home. Simply add oats to a blender and blend until a flour consistency is achieved.
  • For best results, use overripe bananas as they will help to enhance the sweetness and flavour of the bars.
  • I recommend lining the baking dish with parchment paper and letting some of the paper hang over the sides of the pan. It will make it much easier to remove the bars from the pan and cut them into pieces.
  • Allow the baked oatmeal mixture to cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing into bars to allow them to firm up slightly.
