Banana and Apple Granola Bar

Pin It Now!

Today is another recipe of granola bar using muesli. This one is simple as no filling is needed. Just pour the batter into pan and bake. As the name stated banana and apples are been used. With these great fruits this granola bar is packed with flavour. Remember to use super ripe banana (the brownest the better) as it really affect the sweetest and flavour. Believe it or not this bar tastes like banana bread! But with more chewy texture which I like!
