Take along snack for the healthy brown bag. From Fat Free Vegan, an unbelievably beautifully prepared website for all things healthy. While this recipe is not low fat, most of her recipes are. Check out her blog page.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1⁄2 cup cashews
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
- 6 tablespoons oatmeal
- 4 dates, pitted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Slice the bananas and microwave on 60% power for about 7 minutes. Scrape from plate while still warm. In a processor, pulse the cashews until coarsely chopped. Add the oatmeal and pulse a couple more times. Add all of the other ingredients and blend to a paste. Roll into desired shape, and refrigerate.
These bars were very tasty - loved the ingredients. But, for some reason, they did not get firm. I followed the recipe and refrigerated them, but they did not firm up. The taste, though, was really good and I might try freezing the recipe to see if it will work. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2013.
