no bake healthy granola bars!

2 large overripe bananas
1 cup oats
1/2 cup crunchy cereal
2 tbsp pure maple syrup(or any other sweetener you use)
2 tbsp peanut butter or other nut or seed butter
2 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp dried cranberries or other fruit
2 – 4 tsp cocoa powder
Line a muffin pan with paper liners, or use a silicone muffin pan for easy removal. Mash the bananas. Add wet ingredients and cocoa powder and mix well. Add all other ingredients, mix well then press into prepared muffin tin. Freeze at least 60 minutes before serving.

Angela from Oh She Glows recommends eating them while they’re still soft, but we like keeping them in the freezer for easy snacks. We also use a homemade cereal that stays crunchy but use whatever you have. I’ve even used toasted buckwheat before and it works really well and stays crunchy.
