Recipe Ingredients for Banana Energy Bars

3 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
3/4 cup almonds, roughly chopped
3 bananas
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup Craisins
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tbsp ground flax seed (or flax meal)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup puffed wheat
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup wheat bran

Recipe Directions for Banana Energy Bars

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Line a 9- by 13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper, with about 1 inch of parchment paper overlapping the sides.

  3. Spread out the oats and chopped pecans on a baking sheet. Place in the oven until they are lightly toasted, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.

  4. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with the back of a fork. Stir in applesauce until combined.

  5. Transfer the oats and pecans to a large bowl and stir in dried cranberries, ground flax seed (flax meal), cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

  6. Stir the banana mixture into the oat mixture until well combined and starting to clump together. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and press down evenly.

  7. Bake until the bars are golden brown and starting to separate from sides of the pan, about 30 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes.

  8. Use the parchment paper to lift the bars out of the pan. Let cool to room temperature, then cut into 30 bars. Serve or store in an airtight container. Yield: 30 granola bars.
