Overripe bananas never cease to amaze me. There was a time when I thought that the only option was to throw them out the moment I noticed the bruised, dark spots on the peel. In the last few years, I’ve realized that they are a cook’s blessing in disguise!

Bananas are super healthy-packed with potassium, fiber, vitaming B6, and manganese. They are also a very versatile (often underrated) fruit- you can freeze and puree them into a delicious vegan ice cream, make raw puddings or smoothies, mix them into overnight oats, or use as a substitute for sweetener in baked goods.

These bars are naturally sweetened with ripe bananas and pure maple syrup and make for a healthy and filling breakfast or midday snack for packed lunches, or for moms and dads.

You can whip up this recipe in under 5 minutes then simply pop them into the oven for about 15 minutes, and there you have it-a healthy, filling breakfast, after school snack or grab n’ go treat for a busy day.
