Sticky Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars




Bananas. Peanut butter. Honey. Oats. Applesauce. 

I can't describe how much I love each of these ingredients. And when they come together I am the happiest person on the earth. 

These sticky bars are kind of easy to make. As they're no-bake you can probably throw everything in a bowl and have them ready in 5 minutes. Okay, you actually have to wait several hours until they firm up and that's a hard thing to do. So I highly recommend making them in the evening and refrigerating overnight. So you won't be tempted everytime you pass the fridge.

One important note about these yummy bars is that they're quite sticky. I considered trying to bake these and expect that the heat would dry them out a little and make less sticky but in fact I'm not going to do this. They're simply too good as they are. Believe me, the taste is so good that nothing else matters.


Sticky Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

1 medium overripe banana, mashed
4 tbsp honey
50g salted peanut butter
1 tbsp applesauce
1 1/2 cup quick oats
1 cup old-fashioned oats

1) In a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, combine banana, honey, peanut butter and applesauce. Stir until melted.

2) Add oats and mix to combine. Press into 10x20cm baking dish and refrigerate several hours until firm. Keep refrigerated.
