Anyway, we thought we would get ready for this challenge by testing some of the recipes from the book. I modified this one because the first time I made it they came out kind of dry. The second time I made these bars they were moist and delicious!
2 very ripe bananas
2 cups quick cook rolled oats (I used 1.5 cups of rolled oats and .5 cups of cracked oats for this second batch)
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (I used a single serve applesauce container, which was slightly more than1/4 cup)
Mash the bananas and mix everything together in a large bowl. Press into a baking pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350. Let it cool and then cut into bars or squares. That's it--pretty easy!
Notes: In the Eat to Live book they say you can also add 1 T date sugar. I have no idea what date sugar is so I don't add it. Also, they say you can do chopped dates or raisins. It came out better with the dates, in my opinion.
