No Bake Granola Bars

1 ripe banana
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried dates
1/2 cup toasted almonds

1 cup granola (I used homemade one) OR
1 cup toasted rolled oats
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
3 tablespoons coconut flakes

Yields about 12 squares/bars
Blend banana, cherries, apricots, raisins, dates and toasted almonds in a food processor until coarse.

If you don't have granola at hand, mix the oats, coconut and sesame and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes at 150C. Transfer the fruit nut mixture to bowl and stir in the granola. Press the mixture into a baking pan and keep refrigerated for at least 12 hours to allow flavors to spread. Cut into bars or squares. Keep refrigerated.
