Easy, Guilt-Free Banana Nut Squares

From Clarissa Kussin

DID YOU KNOW: Bananas are one of the most nutritional and healing fruits readily available today. They are 76% water and are packed with vitamins C and B6 and minerals such as potassium, copper, and manganese. Their high water/nutrient ratio makes them a great electrolyte food perfect for busy moms, workout enthusiasts, and people on the go. Bananas are also an excellent “brain food” great for heavy thinkers and are known to help build strong muscles as well as strengthen the nervous system.

These Banana Nut Squares add the benefits of nuts (protein, healthy fats) to make the perfect snack that tastes great and packs a nutritious punch.
