Recipe Notes

  • Oats are naturally gluten-free, but to be sure, you can use gluten-free oats for this recipe but not instant oats.
  • Fresh blueberries work best, but you can use frozen blueberries, too.
  • Store the breakfast bars in an airtight container for up to a week or freeze for up to 2 months.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Mash the ripe bananas in a mixing bowl. Add in nut butter, a dash of salt and oats. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Gently fold in most of the blueberries (save a little for the top).
  3. Press mixture into a 9x9-inch baking pan that's been lined with parchment paper. Top with remaining blueberries. If desired, drizzle with a bit of maple syrup and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Serve warm.
