·         Baking Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

·         Prepare a 9x13 inch baking pan by spraying with eat clean cooking spray

·          Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside. Combine applesauce and butter/oil in a separate bowl with an electric mixer. Beat well. Add in eggs, vanilla, sugar and mashed bananas. Mix well. Slowly add flour mixture into the wet mixture. Add walnuts and mix well. Spoon batter into pan and cook for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from pan, let cool, then cut...and enjoy!

That's the official recipe.  So..I never follow the rules or do what I am supposed to.  That goes for just about everything including recipes.  I just dumped it all in a bowl, mixed it with a hand mixer and poured it in the pan and baked it.

Here are my ingredients
fresh ground flour..yummy

Salt and Baking powder
 This is what cardamom looks like..just a small pinch is enough flavor
This is where I broke the law and just dumped it all in one bowl
so the sucanat sugar just when in on the rest

and so did the applesauce and coconut oil..just went right on top of the whole thing ;)

One egg and 3 egg whites (they sell these in a carton but I had some in a bowl left over from something else)
This looks kinda weird, but I just put the bananas in on top and then started in on the whole bowl with a hand mixer.

Then I chopped the walnuts up very small and mixed them in

Mixing away
Poured into a pan
oops..I forgot to add vanilla and so I just poured it in, in the pan and mixed it in real quick
Yummy...finished baked banana oat bars
