These banana and peanut butter flavoured protein bars are great for a quick and easy breakfast on the go or if you need a quick energy boost throughout the day. They are also very quick and easy to make and a great way to use over ripe bananas and a few cupboard essentials you may have lying around. The recipe can also be made vegan friendly with the use of vegan chocolate chips (or you could just replace the chocolate chips with nuts!) and it is a great way to enjoy a healthy, organic sweet treat!

These protein bars are a great solution for a quick and nutritious breakfast or snack and can be made ahead to help you with the weekly meal prep!

Mashed banana is mixed with maple syrup, peanut butter and coconut oil.

Rolled oats, whey protein and dark chocolate chips are then stirred into the mix.

The whole thing is then simply baked for 25 minutes before it can be cut up into simple, convenient bars of goodness!
