I've mentioned before how hard mornings are for me
I totally agree with Zooey.
When I wake up, I don't have the mental function or energy
to whip up a delicious breakfast,
so last week I whipped up a batch of these one evening and grabbed one
on the way out the door each morning. It was super easy!
These are a great alternative to sugary cereal bars
for a simple and nutritious, on-the-go breakfast!
These bars are packed with good-for-you ingredients
and have no added sugars (not even honey!)
What You Need:
1/2 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup whole nuts (choose your favorite)
1 ½ cup total of dried fruits (cherries, cranberries, apricots, raisins, coconut, etc.)
1 cup rolled oats
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Pinch cinnamon (optional)
1/4 cup pumpkin or sunflower seeds (optional)
What To Do:
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a food processor, coarsely chop nuts and dried fruits. Mix nut butter and bananas until a paste forms. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Spoon into lightly greased muffin cups and bake for 15 minutes. (I used cupcake liners so I didn't have the wash the muffin pan. Score) These can be stored in refrigerator for 5 days.
