breakfast bars

an amalgam of banana bread and oatmeal scone, baked in a 9x13" pan and cut into squares.
next time i think i'll try baking this same dough (with a bit more oil) as cookies.

preheat oven to 350.

whisk together in large bowl
  • 1 1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 c. rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
combine in medium bowl
  • 2 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 c. applesauce
  • 1/4 c. oil
  • 1/2 c. agave nectar and/or honey
mix wet into dry and add
  • 1 c. dried dates, chopped
  • 1 c. pecans, chopped
spread dough in bottom of greased 9x13" pan and bake until edges brown

  1. I'm nomming one of these right now. nom nom nom...


    i was wondering if one were to move the balance to 2 cups oats, 1 cup flour, and use less applesauce or oil and more agave nectar if it would come out more like a granola bar?
