Re: Walmart doesn't carry my family's favorite oatmeal-to-go bar, can I make my own?
And another! I love making oatmeal bars as a snack!
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Squares
1 1/2 cups oats (old fashioned or quick)
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt (or 1/4 tsp. table salt)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 large banana, mashed
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1. Mix together the oats, brown sugar (I used a little less than 1/4 cup), baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
2. Add in the vanilla, milk, and egg. Mix the ingredients together. Then add in the mashed banana and peanut butter and stir to combine.
3. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 8x8 inch baking pan. Bake at 350º for 20 minutes. Cool, cut into squares, and enjoy!
