Bake These Easy Oatmeal Squares for Breakfast (Filled w/ Banana, Chocolate Chips, & Peanut Butter)
Bake up a batch of these yummy oatmeal breakfast bars full of peanut butter, banana, and chocolate chips. It’s a simple way to bake oatmeal instead of making it on the stove in the morning!

- Have a nut allergy? Leave out the peanut butter and use sunflower seed butter or another nut butter alternative.
- The mini chocolate chips are yummy yet optional. You could omit them or substitute in raisins, other dried fruits, or even nuts if desired. This idea is very easy to change according to your taste.
- I used honey as a sweetener, but you could use maple syrup or sugar instead.

These oatmeal squares are so good! We loved this recipe.
They almost taste like a slice of warm yummy chocolate chip banana bread, but just a little less sweet. Perfect to enjoy with a warm cup of coffee in the morning.
The texture is soft and moist, and I love that only one bowl and baking pan is required to whip these up! Delicious low-effort baked goods are my favorite kind—and this one is a winner!
