We are planning on having some friends over and obviously eating massive amounts of delicious food. Appetizers are hands down my favorite type of food to devour.

So we went to Vegas about a year ago and I ran into Walgreens to grab a quick snack so I could continue on with our endless walking. I have been in search of that snack ever since. It was dumb of me not to remember what it was! I have had cravings ever since. So finally I decided to just make something similar myself.

What I DID know about the bar was that it was banana flavor and it was a type of granola bar. Since banana is like one of my all time fave fruits to bake with I had no problem there. This Chewy Banana Nut Granola Bar recipe is like banana bread in bar form. Seriously delicious and addicting. I can’t keep my hands off these puppies. Whiping up in mere minutes with a little cooling time makes this recipe easy peasy!

  1. Oh my goodness these look delicious. I’m always searching out recipes for those last 2 over ripe bananas sitting on the counter. Can’t wait to try these. Found you on Melt In Your Mouth Monday-boy am I glad I did!


  2. I added half steel cut oats and half quick oats, also when butter mixture was melted and I took it off the heat I added vanilla protein powder. So delicious! Will definitely make these again with add ins such as more flavours of protein powder, nuts and dried fruits.
