Easy to make because they are No-Bake and the perfect school (or work) lunch box treat with oats, banana and chocolate.
2 3/4 cups quick cook oats
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup runny honey or syrup (I used honey)
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter or you could use almond butter if there are allergies
1 Tbs water
4 oz chocolate chips
1/2 cup mashed ripe banana
Line an 8-inch pan with parchment paper. Set aside. If peanut butter isn’t easily stir-able, gently heat it. Stir the oats, salt, honey, peanut butter, and water together until evenly combined. Transfer 2/3 of this mixture to the prepared pan. Press down hard, using a second sheet of parchment to press it evenly into the bottom of the pan. Carefully melt the chocolate chips in a bowl, then stir in the banana until smooth. Spread this mixture on top of the crust. Sprinkle remaining oat crumbles on top of the chocolate, and press down. Refrigerate until firm enough to cut into bars, a few hours.
