Trail Mix Bars

These are yummy, but trail-mixy. So if you don't like nuts, seeds, fruit and esp. peanut butter...then they aren't for you. But they hold together well. I just store mine in the fridge until they're gone. They make a dozen bars. 
I like cranberry, almond, date version. The dates are subttle, but fruity. And I love that you don't have to add any sugar or oil, etc.

1/2 cup nut butter
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup whole almonds, chopped
3/4 cup dried fruit (apricots, cherries, raisins, dates, etc.)
1/4 cup mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, etc.)
1 cup rolled oats

In a small pot heat almond butter and mashed bananas. Stir gently until well combined. Set aside.
In a food processor, coarse chop the almonds, apricots, raisins and cherries. Transfer to a bowl. 
Mix in seeds and oats. Fold in the almond butter mixture. 
Line wide loaf tin with parchment paper and press the batter it. 
Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350F.  Let cool before cutting into bars/squares.
