Strawberry Shortcake Bars

Serves 24 to 30 bars

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 8 ounces, plus 4 ounces, fresh or frozen strawberries, divided (if frozen, they should be slightly thawed first)
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  2. Into the bowl of a food processor (I use a large Cuisinart), add bananas, 8 ounces strawberries, oats, dates, baking powder, and vanilla. Process until the mixture is well combined.
  3. Remove bowl and blade from the base. Divide batter evenly, filling either a silicone brownie-bites pan or a nonstick miniature muffin pan. (If you have more batter than fits easily, just start a second pan. You won’t want to over-fill because these will rise a little bit.)
  4. Dice the remaining 4 ounces of strawberries, and dot them over the top of the batter, pressing just slightly so that they stay in place. Bake for 15 minutes, or until almost firm.
  5. Remove from the oven and place it on the cooling rack. Allow to cool, at least a little bit, and enjoy!
