SCD Recipe: Basic Banana Nut Breakfast Bars


When I’m looking for something quick and easy to bake it usually has bananas in it. I have a lot of banana recipes here.

Bananas are:

  • Inexpensive
  • Easy to cook with
  • Sweet
  • Easy on the digestive system
  • Good

I like this recipe a lot because it doesn’t have any added sweetener – basically there isn’t any honey in it. These bars have banana bread flavor and are not too sweet. I like to toast them in the toaster oven or throw them in a pan with a little butter. They’re great with peanut butter or you can spread a little honey and cinnamon on top.

I always store baked goods in the refrigerator and then heat them up in a toaster or pan. 

This recipe is very versatile. You can use whatever combination of nuts and dried fruit you prefer, or none at all if you want plain banana bars!
