Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Bars are a great meal-prep recipe that can be eaten for breakfast or as a snack! These breakfast bars are super simple to throw together and require only 9 ingredients and 40 minutes of your time! Plus they’re kid-friendly too!
Guys, we made it. The first week of January is just about over, how are we all doing? Is there anyone out there trying Veganuary this month? While I’m not, I am continuing to add more veggie and vegan recipes to my repertoire, and these Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars are no exception!
These little bars are full of oats, peanut butter, banana and some extra peanuts for crunch. Plus a little maple syrup, almond milk and vanilla of course. Super simple to whip up so you’re ready to take on the day.
These are great to make ahead of time, like on a Sunday, so you’ve got a weeks worth of Breakfast Bars ready to go. You’ve then got something to throw in your bag (maybe in some kind of Tupperware, for safety) to save you from spending a small fortune on breakfast at work.
The other wonderful thing about these is that they’re super versatile. Don’t like peanut butter (I’m not sure why you wouldn’t, but there’s a lot I don’t understand about the world) swap it out for almond butter or maybe cashew butter. Throw in some seasonal fruits: berries over Summer or apples and pears for Autumn. I’m thinking maybe some rhubarb for Spring but that might need a little testing. What I’m saying is that the Breakfast Bar is your oyster. Enjoy!
