Great healthy snack! I used the recipe as a good foundation to substitute my favorite add-ins. Very versatile. I used dates and almonds.

Delicious and versatile. I've made them serveral times. Bake it in muffin cups for one less step and to make them easy to grab and go. I have a sulfite allergy and must leave out the dried fruit, but add a few extra berries. I've also switched up which type nuts and berries as to what I have on had. It's a healthy sweet treat.
This is a great health food that actually is healthy No added sugar outside of honey Flax and sunflowers on top added some nice texture Only change I made was added some salt to batter and salted the top a bit.
Lots of good stuff in here! Not your grab-n-go breakfast bar, but very moist from the bananas and loaded with flavor. The fresh blueberries held their shape pretty well in the bars, so they'll pop in your mouth. I used sunflower kernels instead of seeds (it's what I had on hand), but otherwise followed the recipe. In the future, I might try cutting back on the mashed banana a bit, maybe 1/4 cup, to see if that'll firm them up a bit because I'd prefer a bar that I don't have to eat with a fork (although some might say it's worth the effort!). I cut into 12 bars rather than 9, and I would make these again. Thanks for a new breakfast treat.
The only change I made was to make them in a mini-muffin pan, got 12 ready to grab munchies instead of bars. They don't stick to the paper liners either. Don't rise up at all but very pretty and healthy too!
These are very good. I substituted almond butter for the peanut butter, and added cinnamon and salt. I also used 1 whole egg instead of 2 whites. The bars hold together well, and I will make this again with different nuts and fruits.
Delicious! I'd leave it in the oven for 5 - 10 more minutes. I want to try them again with apples and cinnamon instead of blueberries, and raspberries and almond butter instead of pb and blueberries. These will be a staple in my fridge.
This was a great recipe, just a slight banana flavor for those who aren't looking for an overly "banana'd" taste. Will make this again.
These bars were super easy to make. I substituted sunflower seeds for pepitas because I like their flavor better. I also used slightly less banana than the recipe called for so the texture wasn’t as runny and the bars stayed together better. Next time I’d add some coconut flakes to it as well. Overall super easy and yummy!
Used prunes, dried blueberries, whole egg, and grape nuts with my oats and almonds. A little more honey because i like something sweet when i am working out.
I think I MADE TO MANY CHANGES.
Exactly what I was looking for. Delicious, nutritious, low sugar and easily modifiable. I used fresh organic blueberries that were on sale. Raisins instead of figs, and threw in some no sugar added muesli when I didn't have enough oats. I also added a pint of blueberries, which I think is more than the recipe called for. Still turned out great. Will be using this as a template for many desserts in the future. Thank you for posting this recipe!
I can not eat grains right now, but I made them twice for two kids and an adult. Neither time were they to anyone's taste. The comment was "bland." Could be the audience.
So Yummy! I made these for my toddler so I did some things differently. I did not use figs, and I used ground flax feed. I used frozen blueberries because that's what I had. I also added some chocolate chips on top. They are so delicious! Some one mentioned they made them into muffins, I think I might try them as mini muffins next time!
Well, I didn't have any blueberries or figs, so I substituted apples and dried cranberries. That may have made the difference between great and good. This could be a great basic recipe, but I think the figs are pretty important. You just need that chewy element. Also, I think they needed a bit more sweetness. I'm not that into sugar, but two tablespoons of honey just didn't do it for me. Next time I'll add the figs and blueberries, but also add more honey or maybe some brown rice syrup.
Honestly, this is a waste of ingredients! A similar receive with NO egg whites is much better!
We loved the Breakfast Bars. I added some chia seeds and used a whole egg instead of just the white. They came out perfectly and we've been eating them for breakfast ever since. I'll make a new batch this weekend.
Excellent! I also added chia seeds and raspberries.
No changes it was very tasty
These are healthy bars but rather bland. The only substitution I made was craisins instead of figs. If I make these again I’ll add some dark chocolate chips.
These seem like they are complicated but they are not, and I assembled them in about 15 minutes. The end result was really tasty breakfast bars. I will switch out the blueberries next time for apples and cinnamon just to try something different. I also didn’t use parchment, I used cooking spray. Also, I didn’t let them cool completely before I cut them, I should have waited.
What hurt would it do to add a sm amt of sugar to this. Just wondering because I might do that! I like all other ingrediants!
THESE WERE GREAT!
It turned out ok, heathy things are not always tastes good!
I'm glad I made it. Added more blueberries than suggested and may that it is why I found it more like a cake than a bar. Definitely remake.
I made the recipe and though I used almond butter instead of peanut butter, I don't think peanut butter would have changed my rating. The bars are good. I individually wrapped them for easy grab and go snacking.
This is pretty good and filling. I didnt have blueberries though, i used raspberries instead. Also substituted figs for raisins and also used 1 whole egg instead of 2 whites. It tasted very healthy.
This is dangerously delicious! I substituted dates for figs and cashews for almonds, but it was really, really good! It was a great topping for breakfast yogurt, or snack by itself. I will definitely make these again
Great as is, if you are looking for a healthy alternative. My husband thought it was bland (Pablum) and tasted too much like peanut butter, while I liked it quite a bit. If you understand that healthy doesn't mean that it triggers your brain with fat, salt and acid the way processed food or richer foods do, then you will understand what I mean.
I liked the soft texture of this but it was too bland for my taste. I will try modifying this recipe to include add'l honey (maybe substitute with brown sugar), apples, and cinnamon.
Love these Blueberry Breakfast Bars!!
Save yourself the time and don’t make this. What a lot of effort to be very disappointed. They would have been ok (yes bland but ok) without sunflower seeds. The sunflower seed flavor takes over. Not a good combination.
Absolutely the most delicious breakfast bars I've ever had! Not too sweet and was very filling and so good for you! I used peanut butter powder and it was fabulous!
Too mushy and bland for my taste. Maybe some substitutions would help but I will not try this again.
There was just one problem with these blueberry/banana bars. They must be magic because they just disappeared quickly.
This was a pretty simple and straightforward recipe and it's yummy!! I will probably make it again.
Switched almonds for Vector granola and peanut butter with almond butter. Also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, taste great but I made it a little less moist than wanted
I used figs, blackberries and pecans as my ingredients
