Banana Nut Bars (Raw-ish!)

Banana Nut Bars


It's bananas.  Nutty.  No sugar added.  Crunchy and almost raw.  (Almost = "dehydrated" in the over at 170 degrees.)

Try it out with your favorite nuts and seeds.  I used Brazil nutssunflower seeds, and cashews.


Banana Nut Bars (Raw-ish!)


1 ripe banana
25 drops NuNaturals Pure Liquid Vanilla Stevia
1 T nut butter (I used PB)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2T chia seeds
1/4 C sunflower seeds
1/4 C cashews
10 Brazil nuts


Preheat oven to 170 degrees.


Place first 4 ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  Add seeds and nuts, pulsing until seeds are beginning to break up and incorporate into the banana paste.


Spread batter onto parchment-lined baking sheet to desired thickness (mine was about 1/4 inch thick).


Place in oven for 6-8 hours, flipping 2-3 times after first 3-4 hours.  Turn oven off and allow to continue drying out overnight (~7 hours).


Break into pieces/bars and enjoy!
