I have fallen in love with these yummy granola bars as they give me energy, don’t have added sugar, freeze great & last a long time! I cut them into small chunks, put them in two glass containers. One for the fridge and one for the freezer. They are a perfect addition to a meal or a perfect post workout snack.
5-6 medium size bananas
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup almond butter (any nut butter works)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups old fashion gluten free oats
1 cup pumpkin seeds (I use sprouted)
1 cup chopped up unsulphured dried fruit (apricots, figs, dried cherries)
1/2 cup sliced/slivered almonds
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chia seeds or ground flaxseeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
dash of sea salt
Note: You can use whatever nuts and seeds you like in the recipe, just be sure to use the same measurements.
In a food processor, KitchenAid or blender combine all wet ingredients process until smooth.
In a large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix.
Add wet mixture into dry mixture and evenly coat everything.
Line a pyrex with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray.
In your lined pyrex add mixture and spread out till it’s about 1 inch thick. If your pyrex is small you may need to use two. If its too large just don’t fill it all the way.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees till golden brown
Let cool for at least an hour or refrigerate and then cut into bars. You can cut them however large you want. I did small narrow bars for a total of 27 bars. I like making big batches because they can be stored in the freezer and you will always have a homemade treat to take on a ride or snack on.
