3 Ingredient Breakfast Bars

Dr. Tina Marcantel

This is a simple and easy recipe that stores well in the freezer or refrigerator. These bars can be eaten as a complete breakfast meal or as an in-between meals snack. They contain protein (walnuts), fruit (bananas), and healthy high fiber grain (oatmeal). If you want more protein you can add peanut powder to the mixture.


6 bananas
4 ½ cups rolled oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free)
¾ to 1 cup of walnuts

Mash bananas well and add to rolled oats. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes. Add walnuts and stir. Spread evenly on large greased baking sheet. (Tip: spray your hands with oil to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands.) Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 20-30 minutes. You can use the broiler briefly at the end to brown the top.

Optional: you can add stevia, peanut powder, shredded coconut, or roasted cocoa nibs* to add a variety of flavors. The amounts depend on personal preference.

*What are roasted cocoa nibs? These are roasted cocoa beans with nothing added. They contain no added sugar and are high in fiber. These make a tasty, crunchy after-school snack for kids!
