Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp Natural peanut butter + additional for drizzling, if desired
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 1/4 Cup Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3/4 Cup Ripe banana, mashed (about 1 1/2 large bananas, or 190g)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Raisins
  • 1/3 Cup Banana chips, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 Cup Steel cut oats , gluten free if needed
  • 1/4 Cup Roasted peanuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Cacao nibs

Instructions

  1. Spray a 7-quart slow cooker with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper, leaving enough extra to act as a handle. I just trace my slow cooker insert, and then cut the tracing out a little bigger!

  2. Place the peanut butter and honey in a large, microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, about 1 minute. Whisk together.

  3. Add in the almond milk, banana and cinnamon and whisk again. Finally, whisk in the eggs until well combined.

  4. Stir in the raisins, banana chips, steel cut oats, peanuts and cacao nibs and pour into the slow cooker. Make sure to kind of spread all mix-ins around so each bar has lots of yumminess!

  5. Cover and cook on low until the bars feel set, about 7-8 hours.

  6. Once cooked, gently pull out from the slow cooker and transfer to a wire rack to cool COMPLETELY.

  7. Once cool, slice into bars and DEVOUR!
