Fresh Baked Breakfast

I never make extra time for breakfast, so I always end up eating it in the car. I love the idea of a "breakfast bar", but have never been able to find one that tastes great and isn't over-processed. I love these yummy little bars and they put Nutrigrain bars to shame!!! Plus, they are so healthy, feel free to eat two!

Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Bars


1 very ripe banana
1/3 cup canola oil
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups quick cooking oats
Optional add-ins: chopped banana chips, raisins, chopped walnuts, cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, mash the ripe banana with a fork then add canola oil and brown sugar. Mix well until there are no sugar lumps left. 
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and oats. Mix into wet ingredients and stir in chocolate chips.

4. Pat batter down into a greased square 8-inch pan. Bake for 25 minutes, or until edges are golden. Let cool before cutting into squares.
