Banana Nut Bars (Raw-ish!)
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 nuts, sunflower seeds, and cashews.
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!
