by *CaNdY FiT*
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 40 minutes
Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup oatmeal, uncooked
  • 2 medium overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (or nut butter of choice), melted (but not too hot, luke warm is best)
  • 1/2 cup cranberries, dried, unsweetened
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds, ground
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (optional)
  • 1tsp honey (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, ground



Instructions
  • Pre-heat your oven to bake at 350F
  • Lightly spray your small, square baking pan with olive oil

While the oven is heating up...
  1. Mash your bananas in a medium sized bowl
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients
  3. Mix together with a spoon
  4. Melt your peanut butter in the microwave, about 15 seconds (until luke warm) and pour over the mixture
  5. Mix well until peanut butter is well incorporated throughout
  6. Scoop out the granola bar mixture into your baking pan, about 1/2 to 1 inch in thickness (or to your desired liking), alternatively, you can make mini protein bites too
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes until it hardens
  8. Remove from oven, let cool and slice up into mini granola bars. (Store in air tight container for a few days in the fridge, or freeze)
  9. Enjoy!


optional
  • Crumble on top of your yogurt!
