Baked oats with mashed banana, vanilla extract, a touch of brown sugar, peanut butter and loads of dark chocolate chips.


  • 1 medium ripe banana, mashed
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup granulated or brown sugar
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup milk (of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place the bananas, eggs, brown sugar and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer set on medium speed to beat together until the mixture is fluffy. Reduce the mixer speed to medium-low and slowly add the milk and vanilla extract and beat until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  3. In another medium mixing bowl, stir together the oats, flax seed, baking powder and salt until combined. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Fold in ¾ cup of the dark chocolate chips until mixed in.
  4. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup dark chocolate chips on top.
  5. Bake 20-30 minutes or until the baked oats are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let slightly cool, then slice into squares. Serve warm.


Substitution Tip: You can use quick oats instead of old-fashioned rolled oats.
