Banana nut energy bars are a quick and delicious snack that you can whip up in under 5 minutes with a few simple, healthy ingredients!

 

A hectic schedule is not something foreign to me…especially lately. I got a promotion at work a few months ago and have been blessed with an exciting schedule that definitely keeps me on my toes. I know many of my readers not only work full time, but also juggle a full family life complete with kids.

You’ll notice many more quick recipes on my blog lately  because staying healthy will always be a top priority no matter how busy my life gets. Bars are one of my new go-to recipes because they require few ingredients, are packed with nutrients, and they take but a few minutes to put together. Check out this latest creation that combines the yummy flavor of banana nut bread with the convenience of an energy bar.
