Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 50 minutes
Yield 8 bars or 16 squares


  • 1/3 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly sub
  • 2 2/3 cup overripe mashed banana (banana-free version here)
  • 1 cup milk of choice – I like Almond Breeze Almondmilk
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup OR additional milk of choice if you are used to the lower sweetness level of clean-eating recipes
  • 2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • optional chocolate chips and/or melted peanut butter for garnish


  • Be sure to use bananas that are partially or mostly brown before peeling, which means they're ripe. Preheat the oven to 350 F and either line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment or grease the bottom and sides very well. In a large bowl, stir together the first 5 ingredients until evenly combined, then stir in remaining ingredients. Smooth into the pan, top with chocolate chips if desired. Bake on the center rack 30 minutes, then do not open the oven door even a little, but turn the oven off and let the pan sit in the turned-off oven for an additional 20 minutes. Garnish with additional peanut butter or maple syrup if desired, and serve hot or cold. This tastes even better if you loosely cover and refrigerate overnight, so I highly recommend serving it the day after it's made. Leftovers can also be sliced and frozen for up to two months.
