Banana Cranberry Baked Oatmeal Bars

These oatmeal bars are super filling, dense, and soft. They're perfect for on-the-go breakfasts because they are basically just a bowl of healthy, hearty oatmeal wrapped up into a square you can take with you on the go! Make sure you use toasted nuts, they add great flavor and crunch to the bars.

 Banana Cranberry Baked Oatmeal Bars

2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup craisins
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon canola oil

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
3. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined, then spread the mixture into the prepared pan. 4. Bake for 20 minutes, then allow to cool slightly and cut into bars.
