My kids love to eat! Most days my 5 year old boy will eat double what I eat. I get nervous for when he is a teenager, I don’t think we’ll be able to afford that grocery bill 😉 I always like to have some sort of snack type food in the kitchen for them; something I can put in Ziploc bags and leave on the counter so they can grab it themselves.

These snack bars are always the first thing I make when there are bananas going bad on the counter. I love that it has the added yogurt; it makes them so soft!

 One of my favorite memories from childhood is when my mom would bake up some zucchini bread while we were at school, and we would come home and it would be so warm and delicious, and then we would slather some butter on it, YUM! There is something about home baked breads and muffins that makes you feel so loved.

Chocolate Chip Banana Yogurt Snack Bars

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup greek yogurt, plain or vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup mashed, ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch square pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl beat butter until creamy, about 1 minute. Add greek yogurt, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Beat until combined. Add eggs, bananas and vanilla. Mix well until combined.
  3. Add in flour, and using a wooden spoon, gently combine. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Spread into the baking dish. Bake for about 23-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Notes

** Check with a toothpick to see if they are done cooking. If the toothpick comes out dry and/or with crumbs, then they are done. If it comes out with wet batter still, they need a few more minutes.

** These bars are so pale and light, that it will look like they are not done, but when you test with the toothpick they will be.

** You do not have to use the white whole wheat flour, you can just use 2 cups of all-purpose, if you would rather.

      Boys sure like to eat 🙂 I thought it was only going to get bad when he’s a teenager, nope, it starts way earlier than that 😉

    Made these today and they turned out well, I made it x 1.5 to do a 9×13 pan. I don’t like banana too much so it was a little too much for me. But my daughter loved them. Great snack if you like banana and easy, thanks!

      Thanks Anne. My kids all love bananas so these are favorite with them too. I have a hard time with banana as well…. I blame it on my first pregnancy 🙂

    The ingredients states 1egg but in the directions it says eggs (plural). Is it one egg or two. I’m ready to make them now so I probably won’t hear back right away so I don’t know if they’ll come out right

      Hi Gayle! So sorry I am late getting back to you. It is just 1 egg. I will change the plural egg(s) in the directions. Sorry for the confusion 🙂
