Banana-Oatmeal Breakfast Bars (Low Carb)

I realized the other day that it has been a while since I have posted any new recipes. I guess I had to recover after our fantastic Charleston weekend about 3 weeks ago, and creating new recipes was far from my mind!

Anyway, I made these bars last week. They actually turned out pretty well! While they are not totally on the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan, they do have a low carb count and make for an energizing breakfast.

3 ripe bananas, mashed

1/3 c. unsweetened applesauce

2 c. old fashioned oats

1/4 c. unsweetened coconut flakes

1/4 c. unsweetened almond milk

1/2 c. raisins

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 scoops stevia (I used the scoop from my protein powder, so maybe about 2/3 cup)

Lightly grease a 12x9x1 jelly roll pan.  Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, stirring well. Spread ingredients into the prepared pan.  Bake at 350* for about 20 minutes or until set. You might need a little longer.  These bars stay quite moist, so you will want to refrigerate them after they cool.

I cut mine into 20 bars which gave about 12 grams of carbohydrates per bar. If you cut them into 16 bars, it comes to about 15 grams per bar.
