Banana Oat Bars

cindy sandberg


I'm always on the lookout for healthy after school snacks for the kids. Ran across this recipe awhile back and it fit the bill! With no refined flours-just oats, it's chock full of fruit and whole grain yumminess! Can easily be made gluten-free by using gluten-free oats.
