Healthy Breaky Bars

Sometimes you need something that ticks all the boxes:  Fruit, healthy fats, low sugar, slow burning energy, easy, gluten free, tasty... I could go on... ;)  This EASY recipe will get you kick started for work, school or a busy day of whatever.. Give it a go!

What you'll need:

3 bananas mashed
1/2 cup smashed walnuts
1/2 cup smashed pecans
1/4 cup coconut
1/2 cup craisins (sweetened cranberries -- can be replaced by almost any dried fruit if it's diced finely)
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
1/2 cup milk (again, any kind!)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

How to do what I did:

Smash bananas.  Cut or pummel nut varieties.  Put ALL ingredients in together and mix vigorously (just combine them, it's not hard work).  Form "batter" into cookie shapes - keeping in mind that if you make them smaller, cooking time will be shorter.

Cook in a moderate oven for 15 minutes.  Remove and allow to cool.  EAT THEM.  They are really good.. you won't want to stop at one.. ;)
