Superfood Granola Bar (V, GF)
Serves: 12 bars
3 (very ripe) medium bananas, mashed
¼ cup melted coconut oil
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
2 cups whole oats
½ cup dried goji berries
½ cup unsweetened dried cherries
¼ cup hemp hearts
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a baking sheet with cooking spray or coconut oil.
In a large bowl, mix together mashed bananas with coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the oats, goji berries, cherries and hemp hearts, mix until thoroughly combined.
With damp hands, pour the mixture out onto the prepared baking sheet. Form mixture into a flat rectangle, with even thickness (like shaping a meatloaf), you want it about 1' thick.
Bake 25 minutes, until firm and golden. Remove from oven and let cool completely, about 15-20 minutes.
Slice into bars. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
