🔪 Instructions

  1. In a small bowl combine the dry ingredients; oats, almond flour, flax meal, salt, cinnamon, and protein powder. Stir together and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add bananas and mash with a fork. Add applesauce, syrup, 1/4 cup peanut butter and vanilla. Mix all until creamy smooth. 
  3. Mix in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix just until smooth. Pour into the 8×8 greased pan.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes. Then remove from oven and spread peanut butter all over the top of bars.
  5. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the top is firm and just starting to brown around the edges. With my oven, I had to bake for another 7 minutes to achieve this. 
  6. Completely cool in the refrigerator then cut into 9 bars. Store in an airtight container until you are ready for breakfast.
