Stir in mashed banana and vanilla. Fold in almonds, pecans (or walnuts) and dried fruit.Place a small saucepan over low heat; add in almond butter and honey (or maple syrup) and stir until warm and almond butter is melted. Fold into granola bar mixture until well combined. Pour into prepared pan and press down firmly with hands or with a measuring cup to help bars stay intact.
