Summery Banana Fruit Bars
Craving all the fruity goodness this season? We are, too! We’ve been making and eating these Summery Banana Fruit bars on repeat and mixing and matching with our favorite fruits. If you’re looking for inspiration, head to our Instagram account or try topping with your favorite seasonal fruits - mangos, strawberries, bananas, kiwi, blueberries, or whatever combination your imagination can conjure are perfect for these bars!
These fruit bars are based on the classic fruit pizza we all love, but with a plant-based twist. We used our very own Banana Bread Cookies for the base to give the cookies a fun banana flavor, but any Love + Chew cookies will work great! If you can’t find vegan cream cheese or aren’t a fan, you can play with coconut yogurt and other vegan subs to create a fun breakfast recipe. Either way, we know you’ll love them!
Prep time: 10 min.
