These gluten free, vegan banana bread granola bars are so easy to make and they're completely sweetener free, too!
*the use of a 1/2 cup each of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and dried apricots is a guide only – you can use whatever nuts, seeds and / or dried fruit that you like! To keep the sugar to a minimum, I would recommend using no more than a 1/2 cup of dried fruit at the most, and making up the rest with seeds and nuts. I like to use organic, un-sulfured apricots because they add a nice subtle sweet touch plus they are a great source of iron, too. If you’re using nuts, as they are a bit larger than seeds the bars will work best if you roughly chop them first, so they’re nicely distributed throughout the bars and the bars hold together well.
