The Skinny – Vegan Banana Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

As you all know I have changed my diet. Since I’ve changed my diet I feel a lot more energized. Today we’re taking advantage of the nice weather and going for a walk along Lake Erie. If you’re looking for an easy healthy snack these are it! These bars have a soft and chewy texture. They also smell and taste amazing! These are perfect for on the go snacks.
 
 

Ingredients
1 banana, mashed
1/3 cup natural applesauce (unsweetened)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 and 1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 cup strawberries, diced
1 packet Stevia, optional

Directions
Preheat oven to 350º F. Prepare an 8 inch x 8 inch pan by spraying with PAM; set aside. In a medium sized bowl combine banana, applesauce, and vanilla extract. Once combined mix in baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Stir in oats until everything is well mixed. Add the strawberries to the mixture and combine. Pour mixture into the prepared pan and flatten evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle optional Stevia overtop unbaked bars. Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for approximately 10 minutes. Cut into 10 evenly sized bars and enjoy!
