Banana Bars
THM:E, low fat, no sugar added, gluten and nut free
Serves: 15 servings
  1. Beat wet ingredients together (I used a hand mixer). Add the dry ingredients, baking soda last, and beat again until combined. Pour into a greased 9x13 inch glass pan and shake to smooth the top. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out cleanly and the middle is not super-soggy (it will be soft). Let the bars sit for a few minutes at least before cutting into 15 pieces. They're good warm but will be very soft. I like them best cold. Store these bars in the refrigerator.
The only source of dairy in these bars comes from the whey protein powder. If you replace it with a non-dairy protein powder these would be dairy free. Collagen may work as well.
Trim Healthy Mamas, I recommend eating no more than 2 of these bars in a sitting (that would be the majority of your carb source for an E meal). Of course if you just eat one bar, you can have some other carbs along with it. These bars do have some protein of their own, but some additional lean protein wouldn't be a bad idea.
