Homemade Granola Bars

Granola bars are an easy go to snack for all of us busy bees however, they can secretly pack just as much sugar as a candy bar along with secret mystery chemicals. So be careful and read the label or just make your own at home! These have no added sugar, no flour, dairy free and no mystery ingredients:)

You will need:
2 cups oats
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup honey
2 T Cinnamon
1 t vanilla
3 ripe bananas
Optional: flax seed, chia seeds

Preheat oven to 350
Mash bananas in medium bowl
Add cinnamon, vanilla, peanut butter and honey to bananas
In separate bowl combine oats and almonds
Stir oat mixture to wet ingredients
Spread onto greased cookie sheet

Bake for 25 min

Cut into rectangles and enjoy!

Feel free to add raisins, craisins, choc chips, or any other yummy goodness to these tasty bars! You can substitute the pb for almond or cashew butter!

Love, T
