I know it is not even mid August yet but it is already starting to feel like fall around here. The winds have changed and the need to bake begins!
I have been torn however since I have not done much baking since going gluten free. Baking without flour (I refuse to buy anything labeled “gluten free”) seems tricky!
So I started playing around with oats! Let me tell you, these oatmeal bars are delicious and just as satisfying as anything else laced with wheat! I made them for a pot luck party and they went over so well that I had to make another whole batch for myself!
- 2 medium bananas
- 1 3/4 cups oats
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate
- 1/8 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350c and grease a 9×9 pan. Mix all ingredients together (try microwaving the peanut butter first to make it easier) and bake for 20 minutes.
