    Hi All,

    I lifted this from another website. It sounds pretty good.


    This recipe is from Cooking Light. It's really great--

    Banana-Nut Energy Bars
    From Cooking Light

    1/2 cup mashed ripe banana
    1/3 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup honey
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 large egg
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1 1/4 cups multigrain hot cereal (such as Quaker) or quick-cooking oats
    1/4 cup chopped pecans
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Cooking spray

    Preheat oven to 350.
    Beat the first 6 ingredients at medium speed of a mixer until blended. Lightly spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Gradually add the flour, cereal, pecans, and salt to the banana mixture, stirring until well-blended.

    Spoon mixture into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.

    Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 bar)

    Howdy Dirt Girl - I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you I Love your signature line!!!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: "Yeah Baby! What a Ride!"

    Thanks! There are those days that I have to wonder if I'm going to make it back to the trailhead. My husband's heard me say more than once, "Just leave me for the cougars."
