Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Oatmeal Bars made with 6 ingredients for an easy vegan and gluten-free breakfast recipe!
This recipe is dedicated to all my friends commuting to work everyday, school, all my mamas and papas looking for quick recipes.. pretty much anybody and everybody can use some of these healthier Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Bars in their lives.
There are so many things I love about these bars, I don’t know where to begin.
For starters, it’s made with all vegan, gluten-free and nut-free ingredients. And you only need 6 ingredients to whip them up.
How insane is that?!
Quick breakfast food has never been so easy!
These oatmeal bars combine two of my personal favorites: banana bread AND oatmeal. Plus there is no added sugar besides the banana and chocolate chips and they still taste pretty darn sweet in my opinion. You can snag these coconut sugar-sweetened chocolate chips here and use my code RACHL for free shipping!
What I also love about these bars is you can either slice some and enjoy on the sidewalk walking to the train or you can pair them with some yogurt of choice with a little fruit and nut butter on top. Plus they are very freezer-friendly. I made these twice already and stashed some in the freezer after so when we came home from Jord’s birthday weekend away, I just defrosted them for us!
Ezra has even been eating pieces of these with us. They are kid-friendly to make, which means the whole family can enjoy the same breakfast together. No more making 10 different things for everyone. These chocolate chip banana oatmeal bars are for all!
In case you are looking for some more breakfast ideas, I gotcha covered.
