Go bananas with this delicious summer treat for everyone on the go! We do a lot summer activities and no matter how short or long we are gone, I can always expect to hear “I am hungry.” Something about being in the car makes my tots want to eat; and keeping snacks with me is a must. I whipped up these banana fruit bars with a few simple ingredients to create a fulfilling, tasty treat using Soom Pure Sesame Butter.
Just last week I was talking to another health-minded mom who often slips pureed veggies in her meals. We started discussing Soom products and how to incorporate their smooth, creamy sesame butter into a multitude of recipes. Soom products are gluten free, vegan, protein-packed, fiber-containing versatile ingredients; and also provide essential vitamins and minerals. Making such a healthy recipe for my children made me feel better, knowing exactly what they were eating. They love the flavors and ease of grabbing a “mom-approved” snack. We simply packed each on in a snack baggie and took them to the park, baseball games and gymnastics.
- 3 Cups Quick Oats
- 1 Cup Soom Sesame Butter
- 1 Cup Banana Chips, dried
- 1 Large Banana, Sliced
- ¼ Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 Egg White
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- ¼ Cup Honey
- ¾ Cup Applesauce
- Heat oven to 325 degrees
- Mash the banana and add sesame butter, oats, banana chips, cinnamon,egg white, vanilla, honey and applesauce.
- Continue to blend well until the "dough" is in a ball.
- Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to ¼ inch thick and cut into bars using a knife.
- Place each bar on a wax paper lined cookie sheet, sprayed with non-stick oil.
- Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes or until edges become golden brown.
- Cool completely.
- Store in individual baggies for quick snack on the go!
This fun “energy” bar provides a boost of vitamins and minerals with a taste that we can all “go bananas” over! This treat will definitely come in handy during our family hikes and camping trips. Enjoying such a healthy snack together makes this mom really feel like I have done something right. Next time we make these fruit bars, I might even add some raisins, cranberries or dried blueberries to the mix! Who knows, perhaps we will indulge with some chocolate chips; the possibilities are endless. We cannot wait to create more recipes using Soom Sesame Butter; with its unique consistency, rich and smooth textures, we will be eating it all summer long!
