I found this recipe on the side of one of my favorite yogurt cups.
It's very easy to make, and perfect for a quick "pick me up" in the morning, or anytime.
I hope you like them! :)

I just want to add that I used dated instead of raisins when I made it. I also increased the amount of dates to a cup and a half, and tossed in a handful of raisins, for variety. I also increased the amount of banana almost up to 3 whole bananas. Some in bigger chunks (for texture) and the rest mashed up.

You will love how moist and delicious these bars are. So flavor full, and easy to take on the go. I see my self making these again and again.
