  • Parchment Paper
  • 8x8 Baking Dish


For the bars

  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats Make sure they are gluten free to avoid cross contamination.
  • 2 scoops Collagen Peptides or 2 tablespoons
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar Maple sugar is another good substitute to keep it completely tree nut free.
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup Banana mashed (approx. 1/2 large)
  • 1/4 cup Seed Butter
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract Make sure this is gluten free.
  • 1 Egg

For the topping

  • 1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Oil Avocado Oil is a good substitute to keep it completely tree nut free.


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • In a blender combine the oats, collagen, cinnamon, sugar and salt. Blend until the oats have become flour.
  • In a large bowl, stir together oat mixture, banana, seed butter, vanilla and egg.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared dish. With a spatula or your hand, flatten until it’s evenly distributed across the pan.
  • Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until browned. Set aside to cool completely.
  • Once the bars are cool, remove from the pan and cut into 12 squares.
  • To make the chocolate topping, combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and then if needed place back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. You don’t want to overheat the chocolate as it will freeze up.
  • Once your chocolate has melted, drizzle over the bars. And then serve.
