Ingredients:

1 medium very ripe banana, peeled
2 cups raw oat flakes
1 cup raw almond butter or natural roasted peanut butter
1/4 cup raw honey
2 tablespoons bee pollen
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Coconut oil, raw and unrefined

Directions:

1. Put banana, oats, nut butter, honey, pollen, vanilla, and cinnamon in a food processor or large bowl. Blend or stir manually until you have a stiff, cohesive dough ball.

2. Coat a 9 inch square pan with coconut oil and oil hands as well. Pat the dough evenly into the bottom of the pan. Cover and place in freezer for 24 hours so that the flavors can come together. The texture will become firm and chewy.

3. Cut into nine 3-inch squares and then cut each square in half again so you have a total of 18 bars.

4. Store the bars in a tightly sealed container in the freezer and consume within 2 weeks for best flavor and texture.
