Our home is trying to cut out sugar and eat more natural foods.
I found these and have done a bit of tweaking to make them our own.
2 ripe bananas
2 cups of old-fashioned rolled oats
½ cup of frozen blue berries (thawed- I run them under warm water, so that they are not super plump)
½ cup of any kind of dried fruit. (I use dried strawberries, raisins, and mixed fruit- I buy in the bulk section at Winco)
½ cup of non-sweetened apple juice
4 tablespoons of finely chopped dates
2 tablespoons of chopped pecans (you can add walnuts-yet pecans are less expensive for us)
2 tablespoons of raw sunflower seeds
4 tablespoons of chia seeds. (if you do not use chia seeds-cut apple juice to ¼ cup- chia likes liquid- you can use flax seeds too)
Heat oven to 350°F. Mash peeled bananas in a mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Spray 9 x 12 pan with pam. Spread mixture in the pan. Bake for 25-35 minutes. Cool and cut into rectangles.
Hint: You can use any combination of seeds, nuts, or berries. Mixture stores well in a sealed container.
Blend ripe bananas well.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well.
Press mixture into the lightly greased 9 x 13 pan.
They store well in a sealed container. We like to make a double batch and have them super thick!
