Banana Chocolate Chip bars

These healthy banana chocolate chip bars is my son's favorite. Gluten-free breakfast bars that have no refined sugar, are high in fiber.

Ingredients

For the bars

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup mashed banana or 1 large banana
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips or vegan chocolate chips

For chocolate drizzle

  • 2 tbsps dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking pan (I used a glass loaf pan) with parchment paper or rub down with coconut oil. Set aside.
  • Place half of the rolled oats in a blender and blend until you have oat flour. Add to a medium-sized bowl.
  • Add the rest of the rolled oats, coconut sugar, mashed banana, hemp hearts, chocolate chips, and coconut oil and mix until well incorporated.
  • Press the mix into prepared pan with the back of a spoon, making sure it's packed in tight.
  • Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool for ten minutes. Run a knife along the edges, then flip onto a cutting board.
  • Add the rest of the chocolate chips and melt in the microwave for 30-60 seconds. Pour over the bars. Let cool and slice.

Notes

Container Counts

This recipe would be a treat swap. So 1 serving would be a swap for one yellow.
