Raw Caramel Banana Bars

This recipe came out of a Chopped-like situation this weekend. I had a bunch of random ingredients to use up but I wanted to make a sweet treat. I didn't quite have the ingredients for banana cream pie, and bananas foster seemed too simple, so I whipped up these bars instead. A tasty graham cracker oat crust topped with bananas and a lovely raw caramel from Nutrition Stripped.

There really isn't much else to say about these. They're sweet and delicious and packed full of fresh bananas. Plus this is a great excuse to make a big batch of delicious caramel to keep around for fruit, oatmeal, ice cream... Heck you can put it on almost anything. I've even thrown it in my coffee and hot cocoa! Hopefully you'll give these a try and check out Mckel's website too! She's got so many tasty recipes that it's definitely worth heading over and perusing. Enjoy!
