I do not know how I came about this recipe but when I was flipping through a stack of the single recipes laying in a pile I seen this recipe for Banana oat bars, but there was not a name for this recipe, just the recipe. So, I named it what it seems it should be, Banana oat bars.
And since the doctor told me to drop 20 pounds, again, I figured I need to eat somewhat healthier ...... add "the smushed face here," I decided to try these late last night when I was dying for something sweet.
I did not have the three regular size bananas called in the recipe BUT I did have two huge bananas and they worked out just fine.
You`ll need :
3 medium mash bananas (I used two huge bananas)
1/3 cup applesauce (I used my home canned applesauce)
2 cups of oats (I used Quaker quick oats)
1/4 cup of almond milk (I use blue diamond)
1/2 cup raisins (optional, I used them)
1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
1 teaspoon cinnamon
How to make :
Preheat over to 350°
Spray a 9 x 11 baking pan with Pam.
In a large bowl add all the ingredients and spread in baking pan.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. (17 minutes was good for me)
Remove and cut into bars.
Over each serving drizzle agave nectar and enjoy!
This is not just gluten free but no sugar added and also vegan! I must say, its very different and SOOOO good!
I was thinking and some sliced almonds would be nice added too.
