How To Make Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

These chewy and loaded baked treats make the ultimate oatmeal bars! Made with peanut butter, oats, bananas, and chocolate chips for a decadent dessert.

Preparation: 1 hour 35 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 2 hours



  • 2large bananas,ripe, about 1 cup mashed
  • ½cuppeanut butter,creamy or crunchy
  • ¼cupcoconut sugar,or brown sugar
  • ¼cupunsweetened applesauce
  • ½cupalmond milk,or any nondairy or dairy milk
  • cupsold-fashioned whole oats,or quick oats, not instant
  • 1tspbaking powder
  • ½tspsalt
  • 1tspground cinnamon
  • 1tsppure vanilla extract
  • 1cupsemi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper with enough overhang on the sides to easily remove the bars from the pan. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer, mash the bananas. At medium speed, beat or whisk in the remaining ingredients in the order listed. Batter will be a little thick, but still pourable.

  3. Pour or spoon the mixture evenly into the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 28 minutes or until the center is set.

  4. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan at room temperature for 30 to 60 minutes. After that, place the pan in the refrigerator for 1 hour until chilled. The bars are difficult to cut if they haven’t been chilled.

  5. Remove bars from the pan using the overhang on the sides then cut into bars. Drizzle melted peanut butter over each, if desired.

  6. Serve and enjoy.
