Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a 8- by 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, with about 1 inch of parchment paper overlapping the sides.
  • Spread out the oats and chopped hazelnuts on a baking sheet. Place in the oven until they are lightly toasted, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes. Watch carefully so they don't burn.
  • In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with the back of a fork. Stir in applesauce until combined.
  • Transfer the oats and hazelnuts to a large bowl and stir in dried mango, ground flax seed (flax meal), ground ginger and salt.
  • Stir the banana mixture into the oat mixture until well combined and starting to clump together. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and press down evenly.
  • Bake until the bars are golden brown and starting to separate from sides of the pan, about 30 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
  • Use the parchment paper to lift the bars out of the pan. Let cool to room temperature, then cut into bars.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
