I love a good banana bread. Problem is it is full of calories, butter, and sugar. Well I have found the solution. With just a few whole foods, you can have all the taste of banana bread, with very little calories, and no refined sugar, or butter.
When reading about health, you will find everywhere that more nuts and fruit are vital to a healthy diet. These bars are better than a bowl of cereal. Loaded with protein and nutrients. Best part... They taste amazing!
