Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal Bars

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars

"This is the perfect breakfast for those days when you really want a muffin but need something hearty and healthy like oatmeal. For the best flavor use a very ripe banana. Any fruit can be substituted for the banana, including dried fruit (cranberries!) and nuts. The bars are great the next day, too. Once cool, put the bars into the fridge, then pop them in the microwave for a few seconds before eating."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. Beat applesauce and white sugar together in a bowl. Add oats, milk, eggs, baking powder, and salt to applesauce mixture; beat until evenly mixed. Stir banana into oat mixture. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until firm, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before slicing into bars.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can still make this with a just-ripe banana or any other low sugar fruit, but you'll probably need to add some brown sugar and vanilla to bump up the flavor.

Good Stuff! I added fresh blueberries, dried apples and walnuts, replaced 2% milk with skim and used 2 bananas because I didn't have applesauce. I had enough to fill the 8x8 and make a few mu...

Great! delicious. I used spenda instead of sugar and low calorie margarine.

So good! Tastes like banana bread, but a little more healthy ;-) Comes out with a cakey consistency, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm!

This was great. I added 2 bananas because they were small. This was perfectly sweet for my taste buds.

I really liked this recipe. Instead of using bananas I added diced apples and I really prefer it over the bananas. Very moist and freezes very well.
