Chewy and filling, this sweet treat is the perfect snack for enhancing athletic performance. Excerpted with permission from Raw Energy by Stephanie Tourles.

1 medium, very ripe banana, peeled

2 cups raw oat flakes

1 cup raw almond butter or natural roasted peanut butter

¼ cup raw honey

2 Tbs. bee pollen

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Coconut oil, raw and unrefined

Put banana, oats, nut butter, honey, pollen, vanilla, and cinnamon in food processor or large bowl and blend or stir into stiff, cohesive dough ball.

Coat 9-inch square pan with coconut oil, and oil your hands as well. Pat dough evenly into bottom of pan. Cover, and place in freezer for 24 hours so flavors can meld; the texture will become quite firm and chewy. Alternatively, roll dough into bite-sized balls, and store in freezer as instructed below.

Cut into 3-inch squares, then cut each square in half for a total of 18 bars. Store bars in tightly sealed container in freezer, and consume within 2 weeks for the best flavor and texture.
