Banana Blueberry Bars

 

Yield :

  • Yields: 9 bar
  • Serving Size: 1 bar
  • Smartpoints : 11

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup dates, pitted and halved
  • 1½ cups apple juice
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 bananas, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup walnuts

Preparation :

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a small bowl, soak dates in apple juice for 10-15 minutes. Lay a piece of parchment paper in a 9 x 9-inch baking pan, making sure the sides are covered. Cut slits in the corners of the paper so that the paper overlaps and is flat.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix and set aside. Place bananas and vanilla extract into a blender. Remove dates from apple juice and set aside. Add the strained juice to the blender and blend until creamy. Add dates to the blender and pulse a few times so the dates are in small pieces.
  • Pour the banana mixture into the dry ingredient bowl. Mix until well combined. Stir in the blueberries and walnuts. Using a spatula, pour the batter into baking pan. Bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
