Vegan Banana Bar

I think that’s true, we often choose banana bread after looking at a couple of ripe bananas. Even if it’s really good and easy to make, it’s an obvious choice and maybe too obvious. In fact, that’s funny because my brother just left and when I said: ‘I have super ripe bananas to use, I don’t know how!’; he automatically said ‘Banana bread?’. Even he, who doesn’t have many baked goods references, thinks ripe bananas = banana bread. Well, won’t blame him, and I think I got my job right.

I have some other plans for ripe bananas. You can obviously make this amazing Banana Scone Cake for breakfast or a nice break, OR, you can use it in a bar. Just for you. Or for two. It’s okay. 😉

For this bar, you’ll need a whole ripe banana. That’s right, your one of five a day. Isn’t that cool? Because I would feel bad to make a recipe with just a quarter or half banana: that would end in a bit of a waste and I kinda can’t stand it…

I have to give you some great words to describe this Banana Bar and definitely convince you to make it (for your own good, of course!):Vegan Banana Bar

Vegan

(& ripe banana=no waste!)

From a gustatory point, I hadn’t thought much about this bar, I just tried. I thought about things I love most in a bar and this end up with:

  • Oats for the crunch and the texture
  • Natural Peanut Butter for the taste
  • Banana for the texture and the fruit

 

Hence, this bar is really healthy, vegan and easy: you can just throw everything in the blender mix and voilà!

If you don’t have a blender, you can easily mash everything with a fork and then a whisk. Banana is far easier to work than dates, often used in bars like in my Vegan Bar For One. So you will not have problem to work with it even without a blender.

After firming up the bar in the freezer for 20 minutes (except if you like suuuuuuper moist bars) you can top it with a peanut butter spread like I did: I chose Reese’s chocolate peanut butter spread, that way you don’t have to add anything to a creamy peanut butter. I really like to have both natural peanut butter and a brand peanut butter. Chocolate does add something to this bar: you can also add little chunks of chocolate in it when you mix everything together.

Have I convinced you yet? I really hope so 🙂

NB: This recipe gives a rather moist bar, not the one you can carry on your bag but rather eat at home on a plate at breakfast or for a nice break.
