Welcome to my latest obsession. These Bars are sooooooo yummy, really fast and easy to make, and made with one of my favorite flavor combos- peanut butter and banana!!! There's also some healthy, "milk boosting" ingredients disguised in this treat, and it's still so good you can have it as dessert! (Especially if you drizzle a little chocolate over the top!) Even my kids loved this.
Peanut Butter Banana Lactation Bars
For the batter you'll need:
2 cups Oatmeal
4 Very Ripe Bananas, mashed
3/4 cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Honey (or Agave, Maple Syrup, etc.)
1/2 cup Flax and Chia Seed Blend, ground
For the topping you'll need:
You can use anything you'd like to top your bars! Those ingredients are what I had on hand. Peanuts and chocolate, or some other nutty and crunchy combo would also be very delicious!!! We also had some chocolate syrup leftover from a party a drizzled some of that over the top of a couple of these bars and it was divine!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9" glass baking dish on the bottom and up the sides, coconut oil works perfectly for these.
Mash your bananas in a large bowl. Add the rest of your batter ingredients. Stir until well combined. Evenly spread the batter into your glass dish. Sprinkle your topping evenly over the top of the batter, and press it in gently.
Bake for about 18-20 minutes. Let cool completely before slicing into bars.
Drizzle with chocolate if you desire, and enjoy!!!
