Home-made grab'n'go granola power snack bars

We both love to have a sweet crispy addition to our tea-time with my husband. We are sometimes in a hurry and there is no choice to prepare a full warm breakfast like polenta or even pancakes. We also are passionate travellers as you might see here and also for these times today's recipe is a perfect match. Granola bars: easy, healthy and soooo delicious.

The number of basic ingredients is too low to be true. 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 middle-sized bananas
2 whole eggs
1 tbsp cinnamon 
optional additions: dried fruits, nuts, vanilla, etc.

No special steps for preparation: just heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Mix all dry ingredients, add chopped bananas and eggs. Mix well and make a layer of about 1-1.5 cm on the baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden-brown edges of the oats. Put aside to cool down and then cut into bar pieces - squares was my choice. 

READY :)

Tip!
 For these bars I used raisins as optional ingredients, flaxseeds, pitted dates. When the bars cooled down, I sprinkled them over with a tablespoon of raw honey. This helps to keep all the vitamins and minerals. 

The recipe I offer includes baking step. There are, of course, other options of non-baking recipes with different variations. Those will be presented in my future posts. With peanut butter, chocolate, sesam... What ingredient would you add to your oatmeal bars?
