1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 large)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1-4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/4 cup chia seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
4 scoops (20g) withinUs™ TruMarine® Collagen
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large rectangular baking tray with a piece of parchment paper (with overhang) so the bars are easier to remove.
2. In a large bowl, mash bananas until smooth, and stir in vanilla.
3. Stir oats into the banana mixture until fully incorporated. Option - put oats in the blender for a smoother bar texture.
4. Stir in dried cranberries, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin and chia seeds, hemp hearts, cinnamon, salt, and withinUs™ TruMarine® Collagen into the banana-oat mixture until thoroughly combined.
5. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking tray. Smooth the mixture out until even and compact.
