Healthy and delicious oat and almond flour banana bars for breakfast, snacks or dessert! They are vegan, oil-free, gluten-free and added sugar-free (except for the chocolate chips). Only 5 ingredients, too!


  • 1 and 2/3 cups (425 mL) mashed very ripe bananas
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (135 g) rolled oats (certified GF, as needed)
  • 3/4 cup (84 g) almond flour or almond meal
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (or adjust to preference)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Optional Additions


  1. In a large bowl, combine the bananas and oats. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Line a 9-inch (22.5 cm) baking pan with parchment paper (spray or grease the exposed interior sides).
  3. After 15 minutes have passed, vigorously stir the bananas and oats, breaking down the oats and creating a relatively creamy mixture.
  4. Add the almond flour, baking powder and optional salt to bowl (if using, add vanilla and/or cinnamon, too). Stir until completely combined.
  5. Spread the dough in the prepared pan, smoothing the top. Sprinkle the top with the chocolate chips.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 22 to 25 minutes until the center is set and the edges are golden brown. Cool completely on a cooling rack.
  7. Use the parchment paper to remove the bars from the pan. Cut into 16 squares or bars.
