Chewy, naturally-sweetened granola bars for busy days.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Mash or blend bananas into a paste and mix with vanilla, oil, and egg whites.
Add wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix rather well to coat.
Spread the mixture into a parchment or Silpat-lined sheet tray or 9″ by 9″ casserole dish, to about a height of 1/2″. Pack it down well so as not to leave gaps. It will be sticky.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until solid and slightly browned, rotating tray after first 10.
Then remove it from the oven and let it cool in pan for 1/2 hour, then turn it out onto a cutting board and cut into desired sizes/shapes. Put the cut bars onto another baking tray and let them cool completely.
Once bars are cooled, set oven to 325 F and place cut bars immediately back into the oven. When oven is preheated, turn it off and allow bars to reheat and crisp. Leave them in the oven with door closed for an hour or longer, depending on desired texture.
I am a Mexican food fiend and nothing makes me happier than a big bowl of pico de gallo and chips. This is such an easy recipe and you can make it mild, medium or spicy depending on what you prefer. I like spicy, so jalapeno peppers are for me, but you could add habanero peppers if you like a lot of heat!
