Banana Nut Bar
You Will Need:
*1/4 Cup Dates
*1 Small Banana
*8 tbs Wheat Bran *
8 tbs Oats
*2 tbs Almonds
*1 tbs Walnuts

Steps:
Use the same process here as for the Peanut Butter bars. 350F for 15 minutes.

The Banana Nut bars are naturally softer than the Peanut Butter Bars. If you wish, you could bake them for a little longer if you want them to be a little harder.
