Strawberry Banana Bars

Day 5 post plastics (round 2). I had a little incident this morning with the bandages sticking and tearing off the scab that was forming. Not fun. I'm still really swollen and purplish but I'm enjoying my pain medicine and taking it slow. I did mess around in the kitchen a bit this morning...

Shelly's Strawberry Banana Bars

1/3 cup Raw Almonds, ground
1/3 cup Steel Cut Oatmeal
1/4 cup Soy Flour (7 g. of protein per 1/4 cup)
2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
1 Tablespoon Cold Butter
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 cup Nuts, chopped (I used 1/2 pecans, 1/2 walnuts)
1 Egg, beaten
1 Banana, mashed
2 fresh Strawberries, diced
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)

Mash banana and beat egg and set both aside. In a mini food processor whiz almonds, oats, soy flour, baking powder till fine. Add almond butter and butter and whiz again till incorporated. Add to egg and banana mixture. Add SF Torani syrup, strawberries and chopped nuts. Mix well.

Pat with a fork into 5 x 7" baking dish that has been lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Let them cool and cut into 8 bars. I like them cold out of the fridge.

Strawberry Glaze

1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Strawberry Jam (I use Smucker's Simply Fruit)

Microwave for 25 seconds. Drizzle over cooled bars.
