CHUNKY OATMEAL BANANA BARS🍌 all you need is one bowl + a few minimal whole food ingredients you likely already have on hand!
These Chunky Banana Oatmeal Bars are so quick and easy to make and are a yummy snack, breakfast, or healthy dessert! The texture is soft and chewy, with a bit of crunch from the crushed walnuts and chocolatey goodness from the chocolate chips.
