Many of you requested this recipe so I tried to supply it as quickly as possible!  I found this recipe online and tweaked it so I could use ingredients on hand.  The final result is a cross between a chewy granola bar and one of those “Oatmeal to Go” breakfast bars/cookies.  Either way… they are quite filling and delicious!  If you have other recipes that you would like to see leave me a comment and I’ll try to get them up next!

Banana Almond Butter Breakfast Bars

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/c cup sliced raw almonds
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup applesauce
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup smooth almond butter
2 very ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degree. Spread oats, almonds, and wheat germ on baking sheet. Toast these ingredients for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Place all of the remaining ingredients in your mixer and blend well. Add toasted ingredients to the wet ingredients.

Line a 9×9 pan with aluminum foil. Spread the mixture evenly into baking dish. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Allow the bars to cool. Lift bars out of the pan by taking a hold of the aluminum foil. Cut the large square into 12 granola bar size pieces. You can wrap these individually in plastic wrap if you wish for a quick and delicious snack or grab and go breakfast.
