These healthy banana bread bars have a crispy crust & moist inside that are sure to please!

What makes this banana bread healthy? The main ingredients are oats, coconut flour, coconut oil & raw, local honey! These are all great sources of energy that are great before a workout. It is very satisfying as well. I had a slice before hot yoga today &, no joke, was still full 5 hrs later!

  1. Has a high smoke point, which prevents harmful carcinogens
  2. Kills your hunger, so you eat less without even trying
  3. Can increase your E expenditure, helping you burn more fat

*I use raw, local honey to ensure that my honey is not mixed with anything unnatural.
