Wow. This is probably the most boring thing I have made in a long time. I had really really high hopes for some reason, since it was adapted from an actual recipe that only had 4 ingredients. TheseĀ 4-Ingredient Banana Oat Bars just didn’t float my boat.

First of all, don’t make them in a 9 inch pan. They become paper thin. The banana only as a liquid (besides vanilla) just doesn’t soften the oats enough, and they are kind of plain, even when I added baking spice.

However, these are amazing with peanut butter or biscoff spread. Yes, I’ve been eating them with biscoff spread mainly, maybe a nutella substitute next? It’s a way better vehicle for these spreads than a spoon!
