This recipe is from the wife of a guy I race with. They're great, at least I think so, and are perfect fuel for those long 5+ hour spring training rides. In cold weather they're a lot easier to down than a frozen Clif bar and taste better.
*I use organic fruits, flax, flours, oats, etc. for these.
Preheat oven to 350.
Oil a 9 x 9 inch glass baking dish.
Mix together in a bowl:
¾ cup of amaranth or whole-wheat flour
¾ cup unbleached white flour
1 cup of oats
1cup ground flax seeds
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Add some of the following:
Raisons, dried plumbs, apricots, nuts, coconut, dates, figs, cranberries, craisons, blueberries, apples, etc.
In a food processor blend together:
2-3 ripe bananas
3 tablespoons canola oil
1teaspoon vanilla extract
Add to dry mixture, stir.
Then add about 6-10 ounces of yogurt or kefir
If the mixture is still dry you can add more yogurt or maple syrup or some fruit juice (thick ones like pear or mango work best).
If you want them sweeter you could add some honey, sorgum or molasses.
Scoop the mixture into the baking dish.
Bake about 30 minutes.
I store them in the refrigerator.
