Have bananas? rolled oats? dried dates? These fool proof, naturally sweetened banana oat bars are made with ingredients we always have on hand.
2-5 bananas (the more bananas the better)
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup pitted, chopped dried dates
Recommended: (1/2 tsp true cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract)
Mix rolled oats, cinnamon and dates.
In separate bowl, mash up bananas until almost in a liquid form. br>
Combine mashed bananas, vanilla extract, and rolled oats mixture.
Stir until evenly distributed.
Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Pat mixture evenly in baking pan.
