Energy Bites – Bananas & Oats

For a couple of weeks I have been seeing this posting about making energy bites/bars out of bananas.

So the day came when I had 2 bananas that needed attention so I embarked on this testing, testing being, will the family like them or not!

Recipe is pretty easy and since I made the first batch I have been replacing a few of the ingredients here and there but to start off, here is what it calls for:

  • 2 bananas mashed
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 2 cups of rolled oats ( I used the regular minute Quaker oats)
  • 2 tablespoons of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

Mix it all together, put it in the fridge for a couple of hours and then roll about a tablespoon into balls or put into a mini cupcake mold for the perfect bite.

I love love cinnamon so I use a full teaspoon of it instead of 1/2 and I sometimes replace the peanut butter with Cashew butter, Almond butter or the healthy version of peanut butter. They are also great with Craisins ❤

They are great to have in the fridge for the quick picker upper, as well as great to have on the go in the morning with your coffee!

Got the family seal of approval so they are now a staple in our home and bananas get bought with a purpose in mind 🙂
