banana oat choc bites
These are easy to make since there is no creaming of butter and sugar (my least favorite part of baking). Also, these are not quite so bad for you since they are packed with good ingredients, no flour, dairy or white sugar.
My sister is a teacher and they do a rotation for snacks in the staff room. Their school promotes healthy eating and I like experimenting, so a couple weeks ago, I sent her with these:
In a bowl, combine:

  • 2 large, ripe bananas, mashed
  •  1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil (or any oil)
  • 2 tbs maple syrup (optional – I added this but they didn’t need it)

In another bowl, combine:

  • 1.5 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond meal (you could grind your own almonds in a food processor)
  • 2 tbs ground flax seeds – just for kicks
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • chocolate chips

Mix the wet to the dry and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until cooked. The dough is loose but will firm up as they bake. Enjoy!
