Recipe: Paleo Date/Banana breakfast bars

this makes a big glass baking pans worth (9x12?) you can half the recipe and use the square 8x8 I suppose, I wanted enough to tomorrows breakfast too!
HERE is the more eventful version.

 
-1 ripe banana (or frozen ripe banana like I did)
-3/4 cup creamy almond butter
-1/2 cup soaked almonds
** if you don't have almonds or want to leave them out just use 1 cup of almond butter instead of 3/4 cup and skip the almonds
-4 eggs
-2 tsp vanilla
-8 SOFT pitted medjool dates
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/4 tsp nugmeg
 
Directions:
-Preheat oven to 325 degrees
-Grease pan with coconut oil
-If using a frozen banana-process it smooth, put in mixer bowl
***if using regular ripe banana, mash with fork and place in mixer bowl
-Add in almond butter and mix about 30 seconds to 1 min.
-Process pitted soft dates until clumped
-add (the rest of the ingredients) chopped almonds,dates,eggs, salt, soda, and spices to mixer bowl
-mix on medium until everything is blended. I had to stop the blender, scrape sides and bottom of bowl (to loosen up the clump of almond butter and dates at the bottom)
-Bake about 35 minutes until toothpick comes out clean
 
Let cool about 10-15 minutes or longer, we were hungry so we ate them a bit warm!
