Strawberry-Banana Oatmeal Squares

Here's a quick and easy recipe for those of you looking for something you can make in bulk for a week's worth of breakfast. These vegan oatmeal squares are chock-full of the delicious nutrients you need, and come in at about only 80 calories per serving! Get creative with the recipe - substitute raspberries, blueberries, cherries, or even peaches for diced strawberries, or add your favorite chopped nuts into the mix.

This is definitely a new favorite for me! I'm already planning an Autumn version of this recipe in my head, full of yummy spiced pumpkin puree, toasted pumpkin seeds, and golden flax... Enjoy!

  • 1 small banana, mashed
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 1/4 cup oats
  • 2 large strawberries, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • In a medium-sized bowl, blend banana, applesauce, and vanilla extract.
  • In another larger bowl, mix oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  • Slowly add the banana mixture into the oatmeal mixture. Add the diced strawberries.
  • Grease 6 by 9 inch baking pan, and spread the mixture evenly.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar on top of the mixture.
  • Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees until golden brown.
  • Cool for 20 minutes, cut into squares, and serve!
