Prep time:

The mix of banana and peanut butter makes each bite soft and gooey, while the raisins, coconut oil and honey give a deliciously sweet taste; although, as there's only four spoons of honey across the whole batch, they're not overly sweet, which means they also work really well as an on-the- go breakfast.

Technique tip: Make sure the bananas really are over-ripe, as this gives so much of the sweetness.

Swap option: You can swap out the peanut butter for any nut butter; cashew or almond is delicious. And, if you want to make them more indulgent, try adding chocolate chips instead of raisins.


    • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, plus more for the pan
    • 4 overripe bananas
    • 1/4 cup honey
    • 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter, or any other nut butter
    • 1¼ cups raisins
    • 3¾ cups rolled oats


1. Preheat the over to 400°F. Grease a 8- by 8-inch square brownie pan with coconut oil, or line with parchment paper.

2. In a bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the 3 tablespoons coconut oil, honey, peanut butter, raisins and oats. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.

3. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown.

4. Let rest for at least 15 minutes in the pan to finish setting. Once cool, cut into 12 bars and enjoy.
