Peanut Butter Banana Bars (protein)

 Great combination of banana and peanut butter. My grand kids where over and loved them. A nice source of protein too. Nice after school snack or a great snack anytime of the day. It could also make a great breakfast for on the go.

1 ripe mashed banana
1 3/4 old fashioned oatmeal
1/4 C uncooked quinoa washed
1/2 C peanut butter or nut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 C honey
2 T coconut oil

1. In a small bowl pour in all the ingredients and blend together until all combined.
2. Pour mixture into greased square pan and press down evenly. Cover with plastic
3. Place in fridge and let harden. Serve when hardened.
4. Keep leftovers in fridge in airtight container.


  1. Sounds amazing!! I was looking for a Rice Krispie treat alternative that doesn't have so much fake-sugar in it and this seems like a good substitute! How does the texture of the quinoa end up?

    1. I did not even notice the quinoa. No crunch. You may like this recipe too. Great flavor too. :)
