How-To Tuesday: Healthy Granola Bars

Good morning everyone! Well...YouTube is being incredibly slow lately, so How-To videos are on hold a bit. Today's How-To was going to take approximately 376 minutes to upload, and failed plenty of times to make me want to give up. However, the recipe is just TOO good not to share with you all! I made these granola bars two weeks ago before my crazy insane week with the 3tier cake began, and they were a lifesaver! For all of you busy moms, they make a perfect (and super healthy) breakfast or snack. For you moms with young children, they are perfect to get your kiddos to help in the kitchen! For moms with toddlers who are experienced with finger foods, chop them into sticks and they make a yummy and healthy snack (wait until 12mo+ though, as they have honey in them) Healthy Granola Bars Preheat oven to 350F Mash 3 ripe bananas in a large bowl Mix in: 2 cups trail mix (I used 1/2 cup coconut, 1 cup sunflower seeds, 1/2 toasted almonds. Use your favourites!) 2 cups rolled oats (or steel oats for added nutritional value!) 1 egg 2 tbsp honey (I used Clovermead...if you're in the SWOntario area, stop by! They're amazing!) Optional: 1/3 cup chocolate chips (I didn't put them in mine, but it'd be oh-so-yummy with them!) Mix everything together really well, then press into a 12x9 greased (or parchment lined) bar pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown and crispy (I baked for about 25mins) Cool, and cut into bars! They're super tasty frozen, and make for a really great breakfast on the go! Try adding pumpkin seeds, soy nuts, sesame seeds or cranberries for added yumminess!
