These Banana Nut Protein Bars are great to make for snacks. Can be made no-bake as well as baked. Gluten free, and a great way to use leftover bananas!
Ingredients
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter, smooth
  • ¼ cup stevia baking blend *
  • 1½ medium banana's pureed in blender or mashed
  • ⅓ c chopped walnuts (I used the already chopped walnut crumbs)
  • 1 c old fashioned oats or quick oats (for no-bake)
  • ¾ cup whey protein powder, vanilla (low carb, low sugar kind)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (or not if you want them no-bake)
  2. Mix all together in large bowl.
  3. Spread into an 8x8 square pan.
  4. If baking, bake for 12-14 minutes until golden around the outside, and just cooked in the middle.
  5. DO NOT OVERBAKE, or they will be dry!
  6. Let cool and cut into 16 squares.
Notes
For sweetener, you could also use ¼ c honey, agave, 6 stevia packets, ¼ c substitute. But nutrition will be higher if you use honey or agave.
