Crunchy Chocolate Banana Bars
From: email@example.com (Andrea K. Frankel)
makes 2 large servings (ww: each = 1 fruit, 1 milk, 1 bread, 20 optcals)
2/3 c nonfat dry milk (reg or instant is fine)
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (Ghirardelli, Hershey, Droste...)
1.5 tsp sugar
1 very ripe (even overripe - it gets sweeter) medium banana
1/4 tsp chocolate extract
1.5 oz (about 6 Tbsp) GrapeNuts cereal, or clone
First, spray a piece of foil or small cookie sheet with Pam.
Mix the first three ingredients together. Mash the banana until
thoroughly wet, mix in extract, then stir together with the dry stuff
until it all gets absorbed (yes, you can use your hands, it's fun!).
Stir in the grape nuts.
Form into two bars on the foil or cookie sheet, and freeze. (If you
make it after breakfast, it's ready before lunch!).
Hint: you can drop this by rounded tbsp and make eight "bonbons", and
nibble them throughout the day for a quick chocolate fix!
