- 2Put pecans in food processor or blender,and mix until you have a mealy paste that's sticking to the sides of the bottom; turn off the machine and scrape it off the sides.
- 3Add next seven ingredients and mix, making sure the bananas get completely pureed.
- 4Add in the oats or cereal.
- 5Pulse in the pine nuts and chocolate chips (or stir in by hand) so they don't get crushed.
