Oh yum!

Now these I have to try!  Don't they look fab? 

Peanut Butter Banana Granola Bars
The author adapted this recipe from Anja'sFood 4 Thought 
Makes 12 bars

1/2 cup peanut butter
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup whole almonds
4 large Medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup dried coconut flakes
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup rolled oats (use gluten-free if needed)

Preheat oven to 350F. Line wide loaf tin with parchment paper.

In a small pot gently heat peanut butter with mashed bananas.  Stir until well-combined.  Set aside.

In a food processor, coarsely chop the almonds, dates, and cherries.  Add in the coconut flakes and process another second or two.  Transfer to a bowl and mix in the pumpkin seeds and oats.  Fold in the peanut butter mixture. 

Press the batter into the prepared loaf tin.  Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.  Let cool before cutting into bars.
