Introducing the easiest Breakfast Banana Bars you’ll ever make!

They’re gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free using only 3 ingredients!

These banana bars are the perfect healthy breakfast for on the go or even as a well balanced snack.

I randomly came up with this recipe a few days ago after asking my nutritionist what snacks to make Luise for her tough mudder.

Bananas are an excellent source of carbohydrates, potassium and vitamin B6, all of which can help boost energy levels. 

Oats are a combination of high fibre and complex, slow-digesting carbohydrates. This results in a slow release of sugar into the blood after a meal which provides a sustained supply of energy to the body.

What you’re going to love about these Banana Bars:

  • Easy
  • Versatile
  • 5 mins prep
  • Perfect for on the go
  • Gluten free & Vegan 

Using these 3 simple ingredients you will either already have or can get from any supermarket. (brands featured aren’t sponsored)


You will be so surprised how quick and easy this recipe is.

Firstly you quickly mash the ripe bananas.
