PEANUT BUTTER BANANA BARS
July 26, 2017
Peanut Butter Banana Bars are packed with bananas, whole wheat flour, peanut butter and chocolate chips. Perfectly sweet, filling & satisfying snack!
Peanut Butter Banana Bars are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or a snack! They are delicious, filling and your whole family will love them. I love that they have a ton of bananas in them. I like to bake a batch, cut them into squares and freeze them individually for school lunches, or when we’re on-the-go!
This recipe is a variation on a very popular recipe of ours, Chocolate Chip Banana Bars. I love the addition of peanut butter! It blends with the other flavors nicely and adds a great protein boost. The texture of the bars is still light and the chocolate chips provide just enough sweetness to make them delicious!
Are bananas and peanut butter good for you?
The combination of peanut butter and bananas is a wonderful addition to your diet. Combined, peanut butter and bananas are a great source of protein and fiber. They also contain certain vitamins and minerals that are good for your health, such as potassium and iron. Here is the nutritional information for my Peanut Butter Banana Bars recipe:
