Banana Bread Bars

I must say that bananas are one of my favorite fruits!  I literally have one everyday!  Either as a pre-workout snack with almond butter before my trainings or frozen and blended in my protein smoothie or topped in my oats in a jar or in my many muffin and bread recipes that I have shared here with you!  
Made with minimal ingredients besides the mashed bananas I used banana flour (yes this is a thing now!) I feel the baking companies have come to realize how much we love making our healthy versions of banana bread and muffins and said ‘HEY, let’s make banana flour!’ Genius if you ask me! I received my banana bread plus other baking flours from Pereg Naturals and I love it!  The only ingredient is 100% Banana Flour! 
All in one bowl and 1 pan. No mixer needed-just you and your arm strength! Right into an 8×8 pan and in less than 30 minutes you have yourself a treat! 
Extra bonus is that your house will smell AH-mazing!!  With the sweet smell of the bananas and cinnamon, it brought my son running down the stairs asking – ‘Are You Baking?!’ He is my best critic as he always tries my baked goods first and gives me his honest feedback – I mean he is 10 so no filter there!  LOL!
Sprinkled with cinnamon, coconut sugar and touch of sea salt at the end to top it all off – these bars are moist and yummo! Definitly great for when that sweet tooth kicks in! To make sure I didn’t eat them in one sitting I individually wrapped and froze them so we can enjoy them at a later date too – just defrost at room temp or pop in the microwave for a bit.  They are delish warmed up too! 
Be sure to comment or share with me on Instagram if you make your own batch! Love seeing what you are up to in the kitchen!
