Healthy, on-the-go peanut butter breakfast bars that are loaded with bananas, oats, peanut butter and maple for sweetness.
What’s better than breakfast? Breakfast that is already made for you. And breakfast that tastes like banana bread.
How much I would love to admit that I make a gourmet breakfast every morning, Complete with sunny side up eggs, fresh crisp bacon and perfectly toasted, homemade whole wheat bread, let’s be real. No one’s got time for that.
So I introduce to you one of your new favorite breakfasts that is sure to make a reoccurring appearance in your household. They marry the delicious creaminess of peanut butter, the sweetness of maple and the delectable flavor of the poor brown, ugly spotted banana that quickly becomes the star in this show. These bars provide the perfect amount of carbohydrates, fat and protein to power your day. I love to add vanilla protein powder for an added punch, but it is completely optional. I have made them with and without.
Know what would go perfect with this healthified banana breakfast bar? No, not a warm cup of pumpkin spice coffee. Secretly, don’t mind if I do…BUT slathering it up with some peanut butter and throwing a piece of bacon on top. Considering I saved you SO much time with having breakfast done, there is plently of it left to crisp some up, right?
