ABOUT Banana Oat Bars RECIPE

Bananas are an amazing fruit. All by themselves they can turn into multiple yummy things like creamy, delicious ice cream, and eaten alone they are a satisfying snack. But they also do wonders in baked goods: Bananas take the place of sugar, eggs, and fat in these wondrously chewy, yummy snack bars. These bars have no added sugar, you can whip them up in just a few minutes, and they'll take care of breakfast, after-school snacks, and dessert. Amazing? You bet.
