Banana Protein Bars with Banana Flour and Mini Chocolate Chips

Always inspired to try to improve on my healthy recipes, this is a successful attempt at replicating flour with banana flour. I have a high powered blender called a BlendTec that has a grain grinding setting. I put dried banana chips in it and ground them into a flour. Mixed equal parts vanilla protein powder with banana flour and proceeded to make my ultra healthy, moist and delicious banana protein bars.  Enjoy! xoxo, Kristin

Banana Flour Protein Bars Free Recipe:
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup home ground banana flour
1 egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup MINI chocolate chips (the smaller they are, the more flavor impact)
1/4 tsp Himalayan pink salt
 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 9x9 pan. Mash bananas and mix with dry ingredients. Add egg and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Pour into pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool before slicing.

On a side note, this is not the cheapest blender on the market, but any means. But I've had mine for 10 years now, and continue to believe it was the best purchase I ever made for my kitchen. There are so many incredibly healthy things I can accomplish with this appliance that I could not do without it. Something to consider...
