Banana Oats Bar ~Sugarless(4 ingredient; A healthy guilt free snack)

Bananas are wonder working fruit and I had a very good experience experimenting with it..The earlier challenging trial was the Duet Ice cream(just two ingredients)and this recipe in baking with bananas.Never thought it would be so perfect.Though I have tried  out many recipes with leftover bananas but this was just awesome as it had the natural sweetness and a very very healthy snack :-))




Every one at my place loved it,perfect with  a cup of hot milk in the morning.The dieters can also equally have it as there is no extra calories and fat just the correct measure of a balanced breakfast!!! The recipe is very useful for  working mothers;guilt free too..This can be preapared well in advance and can be served as snack for the school going kids,definitely they gonna ask for more..



Ingredients
Banana 2 ripe
oats 2 cups
dates - 1/4 cup pitted and chopped
almond sliced 1/4 cup (or Walnuts or pecan)
raisins 1/4 cup (optional ,I just added as kids love it)
vanilla extract 1/2 tsp
cinnamon powder 1/2 tsp
salt a pinch





Method
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking tray with butter .
  • Blend the bananas in a blender untill smooth, this makes about 1- 1 1/4 cup.
  • Place the oats in a bowl and add the pitted dates,raisins,almond slices,vanilla extract,cinnamon powder,salt.
  • Pour the banana mix in the bowl and stir together.
  • Place it in the baking tray and press it down with a offset spatula.
  • Place it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, remove and cool on wire rack.(  You  will  notice the sides are browned and crisp.)
  • Cut it into pieces and serve with hot milk.


Servings ~ 10 pieces




Notes
* I just added raisins as kids love it with dry fruits.
* You can replace any dry fruits but dates are mandatory for the sweetness along with bananas.
