Sally’s Banana Oat Bars
I make a double batch, freezing bars in plastic sandwich bags to grab and take with me, as needed.
1 c. ground oats (grind in blender)
1 c. whole oats
2 ripe bananas
½ c. unsweetened applesauce or canned pumpkin
¼ c. nondairy milk of your choice
½ tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. bkg. soda
1 tsp. bkg. powder
½ tbsp. pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
½ c. berries (fresh/frozen) or dried fruit/nuts
Preheat oven 350F. Line 8 x 8" pan with parchment paper or use silicon pan. Place oats in bowl. In blender, mix until smooth: bananas, applesauce/pumpkin, milk, vanilla, bkg. soda, bkg. powder, pumpkin pie spice/cinnamon. Fold wet into dry ingredients. Add berries, dried fruit, or nuts. Bake about 23-25 minutes; be careful not to over bake!
