• 1 cup flour
I used whole wheat pastry flour. These also work well with spelt flour, all purpose flour and even pancake mix (see note.
• ½ cup coconut sugar
regular sugar or brown sugar would work
• 2 teaspoons cinnamon
• 2 very ripe bananas
mashed (about 1 cup)
• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
other oils would work
• 2 eggs
• ¾ cup finely chopped dates
• ½ cup chopped walnuts
dried fruit or chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Spray an 8x8-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine flour or pancake mix, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Create a well in the center of the combined dry ingredients. In the center, whisk eggs, banana and oil together. Then stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in dates and any other optional ingredients (if using).
Transfer batter to prepared baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes.
Let bars cool completely in pan before cutting- enjoy!
-This recipe works fabulously using pancake mix, specifically Kodiak Cake Pancake Mix, instead of flour. If using pancake mix, omit the baking powder and salt.
-When measuring out flour or pancake mix- spoon mix into measuring cup and use a knife to level, for most accurate measurements.
-If feeding a crowd, double the recipe and use a 9x13 baking pan.
