Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Bites

I’m a major chocolate fan. I’m a major cookie fan. I’m a major oat fan. I crave all three of these things on a regular basis, but I don’t really want to eat store-bought versions that are loaded with preservatives and extra sugar. So, after some brainstorming, I came up with these babies – they’re refined sugar free, vegan, and gluten free. You can top them with some almond butter, and they’re a super clean, super filling snack! I’ve even paired them with fruit and eaten them for breakfast. They’re AMAZING dunked in coffee.

To make these puppies, you will need:

2 very ripe banana

1 cup of oats

dash of vanilla extract

dash of cinnamon

1 tablespoon of almond or peanut butter

pinch of baking powder

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I recommend 60% cacao or higher)

generous drizzle of honey

Processed with VSCO with 5 preset

  1. Preheat the oven to 325
  2. Smash bananas with a fork.
  3. Add in oats, vanilla, cinnamon, honey, almond butter, and baking powder. Mix well.
  4. Add in chocolate chips. Add in some more if looks like they need a bit more chocolate lovin’.
  5. Using a tablespoon, spoon out the batter onto a greased baking sheet. These cookies will not rise, so you don’t need to worry about crowding on the pan.
  6. Bake for about 9-10 minutes. Let them cool.

Enjoy these, loves!
