By Terry Garrett

A few weeks ago, I set out to create a healthy banana oat breakfast bar. After much trial and error, I discovered the perfect combination of ingredients that satisfy my sweet tooth and keep me full all morning long. Here are the directions to the final recipe I make almost every morning (serves 1 to 2):
