    Banana, fresh, 3 medium (7" to 7-7/8" long) (remove)
    Sunflower Seeds, without salt, 0.25 cup, hulled (remove)
    Walnuts, 0.25 cup, chopped (remove)
    Natural Peanut Butter (Dry Roasted Ground Peanuts), 8 tbsp (remove)
    *Sesame Seeds, .25 cup (remove)
    Applesauce, unsweetened, .5 cup (remove)
    Oats, 4 cup (remove)


Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line an 9x13 baking pan with parchment. I haven't made these without parchment because I think they would really stick without it. Plus it makes for really easy clean up anyways.

In a large bowl mash the bananas with the back of a fork. Stir in the nut butter until everything is well combined.

Add the oats, chopped nuts, seeds, dried fruit, chocolate, cinnamon, and coconut if using. Stir well until everything is well combined. The batter will be very, very wet and you'll wonder if this will even bake, it will.

Spread the batter evenly into your prepared baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. The top should be slightly browned and give a little when pressed. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars, this is important. Store wrapped tightly in a container or in the fridge.
