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

It’s WW FRIENDLY,  Keto, Diabetic, Candida, Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb, Low Sugar, NON-GMO, and All Natural

Love these bars! I have one every morning before I work out. I have made them also using mangos, apples, blackberries, just about any fruit.

What is the amount of zero point brown sugar used?

Hi Heather

The Lakanto Monkfruit has a 1:1 ratio to regular sugar and you will use 1/2 cup zero point brown sugar sweetener. If you use a different sweetener you'll use the conversion for regular sugar that it recommends on back of the package!

Thanks so much

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!

@Marie Mello, Did you use the 1/3 cup of applesauce as well? Or just 1 cup in total?

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!
