Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups rolled / quick oats use gluten-free if needed
  • ½ cup natural smooth peanut butter
  • 4 medium ripe bananas about 400g / 14 oz
  • pinch of salt ( if using unsalted peanut butter )

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 180c / 360f . Grease / line a 8x8 square baking pan.
  • Using a fork or potato masher, mash the bananas until smooth. A few small chunks here and there is ok.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas and peanut butter. Mix well.
  • Add in the oats and salt. Mix until everything is well incorporated. Then, transfer the mixture to the baking pan. Using the back of a spoon or spatula, gently press down the mixture so that it is evenly distributed throughout the pan.
  • Bake it in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean and the sides are golden brown.
  • Remove it from the oven and let it cool down completely before slicing. Optionally, drizzle it with extra peanut butter before serving !

Notes

Oat bars can be stored in the fridge for up to a week, and in the freezer for 3 months . To freeze,  let them cool down completely first. Then, arrange them on a large plate / tray in a single layer. Pop them into the freezer for 1-2 hours, or until they are frozen. Now, feel free to transfer them to any sealed containers or ziplock bags. 
If you prefer them to be super sweet, feel free to add in 2-4 tablespoon of your preferred sweetener.
