These tasty Blueberry Banana Breakfast Bars make such a delicious breakfast despite being a nutrient dense option. The blueberries and banana give sweetness to these bars and, combined with the oats, mean that they are an appropriate choice to kickstart your day when you want a sweet breakfast. If desired, you could experiment with this recipe by adding a scoop of protein powder or flaxseed into the mixture in place of part of the blended oats to increase the nutrient profile of this recipe.
This is the perfect cosy breakfast to make on those mornings you have a little more time than usual, making it ideal for weekends or days you are working from home. Personally, I like to whip these up after training and shower while they are in the oven! These also make a great snack or dessert option!
This is based on my Banana Bread Breakfast Bars recipe, (which is actually based on my Banana Bread Baked Oats recipe), so if you like these bars you may also want to try that version! As my baked oats recipes have been popular I wanted to create a travel friendly version that could be made in advance and eaten on the go, hence this recipe! If you have tried my Blueberry & Lemon Baked Oats and enjoyed them, why not put a citrus twist on these bars by adding some lemon zest. I have also created these PB & J Stuffed Breakfast Muffins off the back of this recipe.
I use a silicone mould that is split into individual brownie servings to create these bars, however, if your tray is not silicone you could line or grease it instead. If you do not have a tray that has pre portioned brownie sections in then you could use a small brownie tray, (if I had to guess I would say 6″ x 6″ would be optimal), however, this may obviously affect the thickness of the bars. Alternatively, use a muffin tin to make my Blueberry Banana Breakfast Muffins instead.
I bake my bars for twenty minutes when they are individual portions but ovens do vary so allow up to twenty five, especially if you are making one large bake in a small brownie tray that you will be slicing into portions once cool.
As these Blueberry Banana Breakfast Bars are made with oat flour they have a tendency to dry out quickly so are best eaten on the same day but they will last a day or two if stored in an airtight container.
