  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square pan.
  2. Mix oats, banana, protein powder, peanut butter, cranberries, 1/2 cup coconut, almonds, tea, chia seeds, cinnamon, and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl; spread into prepared pan. Top with 1/4 cup coconut.
  3. Bake bars until lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes. Set aside to cool until they set completely, at least 15 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • This is also delicious if you substitute pumpkin for the bananas and add nutmeg, ginger, and allspice.
  • It's also delicious if you leave out the Craisins® and instead add 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips.

Found this while looking for recipes to use up bananas & gave it a try since I had all the ingredients on hand. No one in my family liked it.
