This morning I was mindlessly staring at my large bowl full of ripe bananas, wondering what to make.  I played off of my Banana Nut Butter Bread recipe that I love and turned them into protein breakfast bars (okay, any-time-of-day protein bars 😉 ).  I cannot wait to take these to power myself up a hike!  Check out the nutrition facts of almond meal here & quinoa flakes here!marley beggingMarley really loved the bite she got…and obviously wants them all!

I wish I could say these bars lasted, but Joey and I gobbled these bars up while hurricane winds were blowing around us.  The most difficult part of this recipe is waiting for the bars to set, but it’s so worth it!
