  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 24 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  1. Mash bananas in a bowl.
  2. Add oats, peanut butter, maple syrup and egg and mix well.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
  4. Pour into a 9×9 baking pan lined with parchment paper.

This recipe is very forgiving. A little extra banana or oats won’t hurt. You can leave out the maple syrup or chocolate chips if you want.
