Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Banana Oat Bars

I seriously can’t believe we’re already talking back-to-school! Where did the summer go?

All three of my boys are going to be starting school this fall so I’m already thinking about a game plan for breakfast, lunches and after-school snacks. I’m going to try to bake and prepare as much as possible on Sundays so that we’re stocked and can easily serve up breakfast, pack lunches and be prepared for their hungry bellies when we get back home each afternoon.

These peanut butter banana oat bars are going to be making an appearance quite often! They’re filled with some of our most favorite ingredients and we could eat them for breakfast if we’re in a huge hurry, as a sweet treat in their lunch boxes, or with a glass of milk as an after school snack. We love ‘em!

It’s like eating oatmeal in a bar form that’ll keep you satisfied and energized for hours.

      Hi Lorena! I haven’t calculated the nutrition on these bars, but there are several nutrition calculators out there that you could use. Just Google nutrition calculator and enter all the ingredients in and it will calculate it based on the number of servings. Hope this helps! Enjoy!
