Ingredients

  • 2

    cups rolled oats (certified gluten-free if necessary)

  • 2

    tablespoons ground flax

  • 1

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    cup very ripe mashed bananas

  • ¼

    cup honey (substitute with brown rice syrup if vegan)

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½

    cup chopped dates (or other add-ins of your choice)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F and prepare an 8 inch x8 inch baking pan by lining it with a sheet of aluminum foil, leaving a few inches of overhang on the sides to allow for easy removal. Grease the foil with cooking spray or oil and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, flax, cinnamon, and salt. Add mashed bananas, honey, and vanilla, mixing until fully combined. Fold in dates. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan. Using a greased spatula or your hands, spread the mixture evenly in the pan, pressing down firmly. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until top sets and edges begin to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 10 minutes before cutting into bars with a sharp knife.
