What ingredients do I need to make these Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Squares?

  • Ripe bananas-the more ripe the bananas the sweeter these squares will be.
  • Large eggs- or egg whites 
  • Zero point brown sugar sweetener- I use Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener 
  • Unsweetened almond milk-to thin the batter and to make the squares creamy. 
  • Unsweetened applesauce- used as a substitute for oil
  • Vanilla extract- for flavor
  • Old fashioned it rolled oats or gluten-free rolled oats – be sure to NOT use quick cooking or instant oat-otherwise the texture of the squares will be  soft and soggy
  • Baking powder-to help the squares rise. 
  • Baking soda- to help the squares rise. 
  • Salt- for taste.
  • Cinnamon-for flavor. 
  • Fresh fruit– such as: blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries or you can add no sugar added chocolate chips, for additional points

    What sweetener do I use?

    I love using Lakanto Classic Monkfuit Sweetener and Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener in my baking recipes. The Classic is a zero point white granulated sugar substitute and the the Golden is a zero point brown sugar substitute.  Lakanto MonkFruit Sweetener is a zero glycemic, zero calorie and all natural sugar substitute. It is by far the best tasting sugar alternative and has zero aftertaste or gritty texture like some of the sugar alternatives have.

The Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar-so if you were to use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the measurement that would be equal to real sugar. If you use a different sugar alternative you’ll want to check the point value on the brand you use. They can vary in points. 

TASTES just like sugar | Zero net carbs, Zero calorie, Zero glycemic Sweetener

1:1 SUGAR REPLACEMENT | Lakanto has a perfect mix of monkfruit and erythritol to match the sweetness of sugar and maintain your baking and cooking needs

I love this recipe and make it often. One day when I got ready to make it I discovered I didn't have any bananas. So, instead of bananas I used 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce and increased the eggs to 3. It worked and still tasted good even without the banana flavour. I wanted to share in case anyone else finds themselves in that quandary!

Made these tonight and they are so good!! I’m on purple and did the 8x8 dish and the pieces were substantial. I will definitely try other fruit. Thank you for another great recipe!

Please tell me why most recipes especially WW are divided into odd amounts like this recipe nine servings, I realize nine brings the point value down and looks a lot better to get three points than four or five. I began cooking when I was 16 years old I'm 70 now Please tell me how you cut the servings into 9 equal servings. What I would love to see is recipes posted either for nine squares or eight just to make the serving size much simpler to divide. I love your recipes I have made so many of them You are my number one Weight Watcher website.

Cut the square 8X8 pan like a tic-tac-toe board to get 9 equal servings.

Hi! Looking to make these, but do not have monkfruit. Could you skip that all together?

HI Terri

You can substitute the monk fruit for real sugar or any sweetener of your choice. Yes, you could omit the sweetener-they just won't be as sweet.

Thank you!

Good morning, I loved the flavour but mine were wet. Did I need to bake longer? Also I substituted brown sugar Truvia instead of Monkfruit, did I need to reduce the amount. Thx!!

Hi Kim

Thanks for reaching out. If they were still wet in the middle, I recommend cooking them a bit longer. Keep in mind the oats will absorb most of the moister as as they cool as well. The Lakanto Monkfruit I use has a 1:1 ratio to regular sugar so you would want to use the conversion for real sugar that is shows on the back of the Truvia package.

Hope that helps! Thanks so much
