These delicious banana flavored bars are a cross between a granola bar and baked oatmeal. We loved them plain and with chocolate syrup stirred in. It's wonderful when you can get two different flavors in the same batch.
Sunbutter Banana Oatmeal Bars
1/2 cup Sunbutter
3 tbsp honey, corn syrup or maple syrup
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup Rice Krispies or additional oats
Microwave the Sunbutter and honey for 1 minute then stir until smooth. Stir in the mashed bananas. Add the oats and Rice Krispies then stir until thoroughly combined. Press the mixture firmly and evenly into a parchment paper lined 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Cool completely before cutting into bars or squares.
* If desired, you can add 1/3 cup chocolate syrup to the mixture. You can also press 1/2 of the mixture into 1/2 of the baking dish, mix 3 tbsp chocolate syrup with the remaining mixture then press that mixture into the other 1/2 of the baking dish to make two varieties at once.

My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
