Considering I have a fresh batch of banana chips in my possession, I am going to put them to good use by incorporating them into a popular store brand knock off. Hello Homemade Banana Bread Larabar.
This is not my first attempt at this, as I made the Cashew Cookie flavour awhile back and it turned out well. If you are so inclined you can make your own banana chips, but I do believe you can buy them at the Bulk Barn to skip that step.
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE BANANA BREAD LARABAR
I used equal parts of each ingredient which, amazingly, are only three!
That means one cup each of roasted almonds, chopped dates and the banana chips. Off they go into your food processor for a whirl.
It will take 2-3 minutes and you will know they are fully combined when a ball is formed.
Mine also starts to make a terrible noise but, that could just be because my food processor is a piece of sh*t. Sorry, but it’s both true and the proper term for this particular instance.
Line a small loaf pan with parchment and press the mixture in. Cover it with some saran and pop into the freezer to set.
It takes about an hour to firm up, then it can be cut into bars, squares, or what I decided on, which was smaller chew sized bites for better portion control.
Who am I kidding? I went to town on these! So, I packed them up and shared them with
those lucky ducks my co-workers.
If you have better self control than me these treats will keep in the fridge in an airtight container.
