Easy Banana-Apple Bars

granolabars

Morning, Friends! These delicious banana bars are super easy to make, and your family and friends will love them! Even better, you can dress them up or down. If you need a quick kid-friendly snack, serve a couple of the bars with some milk or yogurt. For a simple springtime dessert, you can serve these bars with your favorite healthy frozen yogurt or frozen fruit sorbet on the side. If you want something extra special, drizzle some melted dark chocolate across the bars and the yogurt, and garnish the yogurt with fresh mint. So pretty and easy!

Ingredients

  • 3 bananas, ripe
  • 2 c. rolled oats
  • 1 large red apple, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/3 c. applesauce
