Apple Cinnamon Banana Oatmeal Squares
- 2 cups rolled oats divided
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 ripe bananas
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 sliced apples
- Preheat oven to 375F. Line an 8x8 square baking dish with parchment paper.
- Put 1 cup of rolled oats in a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process for several minutes until the oats resemble the flour.
- Put bananas in a large bowl and mash them with a fork until smooth. Add maple syrup and mix until combined. Add oat flour, baking powder and the remaining 1 cup of rolled oats. Mix until combined.
- Transfer 2/3 of the banana mixture to the baking dish and spread in a single layer.
- Put a layer of sliced apples on top of the banana mixture.
- Put the remaining banana mixture on top of the apple slices, so it resembles crumble.
- Put the baking dish in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
- Let it cool completely, then slice into bars or squares.
