Apple Crisp Breakfast Bars

INGREDIENTS

2 cups oats
1 tbsp PB powder (plus 2 tbsp for topping)
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch salt
3 ripened bananas, puréed
1/2 cup applesauce
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 diced baking apple, like Cortland
1/2 cup diced walnuts (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

Process oats, PB powder, cinnamon and salt into a food processor and pulse until you get a flour texture, then place in a large bowl. Fold in the diced apple and add the walnuts, if desired.

Place the banana, applesauce and vanilla into the food processor and blend until smooth.

Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix completely. Since there is no gluten, don’t worry about over mixing as the product will not toughen.

Form into a rectangle on top of a parchment-lined cookie sheet pan. Optional: top with slices of apple.

Bake in 350 degree oven until toothpick comes out clean, about 10-15 minutes. Cool and cut into pieces. If desired, mix 2 tbsp PB powder and enough water to make it easy to drizzle on top.

Enjoy!
