These little chewy bars are something that my toddler greatly enjoys; and I saw it high time that I shared!
Quick, easy, healthy, and full of wholesome ingredients -- these granola bars have a wonderful texture, and an even better flavor. They are incredibly tasty, filling, and make a perfect energy fueling snack when you need that extra pick me up.
This is also an incredibly fun recipe for kids to help you make; and easy for little fingers to hold!
For adults or kids alike, you will be no doubt be impressed with the ease and heartiness of these nutrition packed delights. . .

2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
I tbs maple syrup (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a round or square baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine all of the above ingredients. Using your fingers, or a spatula, mix and mash until all is very well combined.
Using the back of a spatula, spread your granola bar mixture into your parchment lined pan until evenly spread

Bake for 27 minutes, or until firm and beginning to turn golden on edges.
Let cool before slicing and serving.
