Carob Chip Goji Granola Bars

Yummy healthy totally sugar free! Gluten free, full of protein, and make a great snack or dessert. To really kick it up a notch you can also melt some peanut butter on top for icing-y goodness!

You need:

3 large very ripe bananas

1/2 tsp each vanilla/almond extract

3/4 cup rolled oats made into flour 

1 cup Quinoa flakes

pinch baking soda

Pinch salt

Pinch baking powder

1/4 cup flax meal

1tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/4 cup vega protein powder

1/4 cup chia seeds 

Goji berries 1/2 cup

1/8 cup carob chips for pressing on top
 First, using dry high speed blender, make your whole oats into a flour, it only takes a few seconds. Then combine all dry ingredients (except carob chips) in a large bowl, set aside. Blend your bananas and extracts on high until a frothy creamy mixture develops, also does not take long. Then mix into the bowl of dry ingredients. Once well mixed, turn into parchment paper lined baking pan (mine is about 12×8 but I did not go all the way to the edges).  Then press carob chips into the top of the bars. 

Bake at 350F for about 25-40 minutes, I like mine extra crispy but 25 min will keep them soft. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, lift out and cool another 10 minutes out of the pan before slicing. Enjoy!
