oatmeal bars

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 bananas, 1 mashed, one sliced
  • 1 ½ cups low fat milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup raisins

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375. Spray a 8×8 baking dish (I used a small pie pan) with cooking spray. Next, combine the oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and raisons in a small bowl. In another bowl combine eggs, 1 mashed banana, milk and vanilla. Combine the bowls and mix well. Pour mixture into the pan. Add sliced banana to the top of the mixture and sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.

Bake for 25-30 mins. Wait for the oatmeal to cool before cutting into bars. Enjoy 🙂
