Step 1: Make sure you have the ingredients

The ingredients for this banana baked oatmeal are pretty simple – you likely already have them in your pantry and fridge. Here’s a quick-reference list of the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 3 ripe bananas (2 mashed with the oatmeal and one sliced for the topping)
  • 2 eggs
  • Milk (diary or plant-based)
  • Vanilla
  • Honey
  • Salt
  • Peanut Butter or Nut Butter – do your best to use a good-quality nut butter. Ideally one without vegetable oils, soybean oils or added sugar.
  • Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • Chocolate Chips – good quality. I prefer the Enjoy Life brand. These are made without toxic oils and refined sugar.

Step 2: Mash bananas and whisk in the other wet ingredients

You’ll start by mashing two of the bananas – set the remaining banana aside. You’ll slice this and use it for topping the baked oatmeal. 

To the mashed banana you’ll add the eggs, honey, peanut butter, vanilla and milk. Whisk together well until all is well incorporated.

Step 3: Add in the oatmeal and salt

To the wet ingredients, you’ll then stir in the oatmeal and salt.

Using a rubber scraper, pour into a prepared 9 x 9 baking dish that you’ve lightly sprayed with non-stick baking spray. I use and prefer Spectrum Non-Stick Coconut Oil Spray. Spread the oatmeal mixture evenly into the prepared pan or dish.

Step 4: Top the oatmeal with the bananas and chocolate chips

Top the oatmeal with the remaining sliced banana, and the chocolate chips. I like and prefer these Enjoy Life Mega-Chunks in this peanut butter banana baked oatmeal.

The chocolate chips are certainly optional. If you would prefer to save yourself a few calories, leave these out and top with just the banana slices. I love these baked oatmeal bars WITH the chocolate chips, it adds a great flavor and tastes like a treat!

Step 5: Bake the Banana Baked Oatmeal 

Bake the oatmeal for 35-40 minutes. It will smell glorious and like you’re baking a fresh loaf of banana bread. If you love banana bread, be sure to check out some of my banana bread recipes: Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread , Purple Ribbon Banana Bread, Double Chocolate Banana Bread.

Once the baked oatmeal comes out of the oven, let cool to room temperature before slicing.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 c. milk (diary or plant-based)
  • 1/3 c. natural, good quality nut butter
  • 3 Tbsp. honey, good quality
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 1/2 c. old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 c. chocolate chips, I like Enjoy Life brand

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 x 9" baking dish with non-stick baking spray. I like and prefer coconut oil spray. Set pan aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash two of the bananas (set one banana aside for slicing to top the oatmeal.) To the mashed bananas, add the eggs, milk, nut butter, honey and vanilla. Whisk together well until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. To the wet ingredients stir in the oatmeal and salt. Pour into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly with a rubber scraper.
  4. Top with the chocolate chips and the remaining sliced banana.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before slicing into 8 bars.
  6. Enjoy right away or refrigerate or freeze for later. Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 5 days. Can be frozen for up to 2 months.

Notes

The honey and the chocolate chips are optional ingredient and can be omitted, if desired. To add additional protein, you may add 1/2 cup of good quality vanilla or unflavored protein powder or collagen protein powder. This will increase the grams of protein per serving. These can also be baked into muffin cups. Divide the batter evenly into 12 muffin cups and bake for 28-30 minutes.
