5 Ingredient energy bars

Taken from here. (link working 06/08/18)


  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup nuts and/or seeds (I used sliced almonds)


  1. Using a hand or standing mixer, mix the bananas, peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon/vanilla, if using, until very smooth.
  2. Add oats and nuts/seeds and mix until combined.
  3. Turn out onto a parchment covered baking dish (about 9×9 inches). Press and flatten with a spatula until evenly distributed.
  4. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until golden brown on edges.
  5. Allow to cool completely before cutting bars.
  6. Wrap in plastic wrap. Store at room temperature for a week or freeze for up to 6 months. (Who are we kidding you won’t be keeping these for 6 months!)
