I love banana nut muffins (or any kind of muffins for that matter.) This recipe for banana nut breakfast bars gives you the home made taste of banana muffins but in a tasty bar recipe instead.
If you are looking for a quick, on the go breakfast recipe that you can grab on a busy week morning, this recipe is perfect.
If you are like me, ripe bananas are something that I often have in my fruit bowl. There are lots of uses for ripe bananas, but one of my favorite ways to use them is in some type of muffin, bread or bar.
Let’s make some Banana Nut Breakfast Bars
The bars are incredibly easy to make. Just combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet in another and then blend them all together and bake at 375 degrees. Easy Peasy!
Combine the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, brown sugar, oatmeal and nuts in one bowl.
Combine the eggs, mashed bananas, cinnamon and vanilla extract in another bowl.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together and blend well, being sure to get all the flour mixed in.
Place the ingredients in a greased and floured 9 x 13″ pan and cook for 25-30 minutes in a preheated 375 º F oven. Cool completely and cut into bars.
