Blueberry-Banana Oat Bars

With the school season back in gear, I’m on the lookout for healthy, energizing after-school snacks for my daughter. These bars are low in sugar, high in fiber, and so delicious you might be tempted to snack before the kids get home!

1 1/3 cups quick-cooking oats 
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. baking soda
1 cup mashed banana (about 2 medium)
¼ cup skim milk
2 egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla
½ cup Craisins (blueberry flavored)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray (try 9x9 square dish for thicker bars). In a medium bowl, mix together oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda. In a large bowl, mix together banana, milk, egg whites, and vanilla. Slowly add in dry ingredients, blending until well combined; stir in Craisins. Bake 35 minutes until golden and cooked through. Cool and cut into bars.
