My boyfriend asked me to make him something to snack on for the week. Happily, I made him some banana nut bars. A simple snack.
2 mashed bananas
3/4 cup of egg substitute (or 3 large eggs)
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1 TSP vanilla extract
Cinnamon to taste (I used 1/2 TBSP)
Ginger to taste (I used 1/2 TSP)
Cloves to taste (I used 1/8 TSP)
Nutmeg to taste (I used 1/8 TSP)
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3 cups nuts of choice. (I used a mixture of Pecans, Almonds and Walnuts)
1 tsp baking powder
Mix wet ingredients, then mix dry ingredients. Mix the two. Spread it on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. I put some whole and pieces of pecans on top to make it pretty.
Bake it in a 300 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until it is done (use knife test).
Let them cool, then cut into bars and enjoy!
If you wanted, you could add chocolate chips, dates or really anything. You could replace the whole wheat flour with flax. I could keep going, but I won’t. I want to see what you come up with!
