After I ate lunch the other day, I really wanted something sweet. I was looking around Pinterest for ideas, and I saw this pin for banana bread.
Um, yum. This looked so good, but most of the ingredients in it are things that I don’t eat (gluten, refined sugar, etc.). Not only that, in all honesty, I was feeling lazy. I didn’t feel like baking anything. The problem was that now I was really craving banana bread! So, I went through the cupboards and fridge and found some things to throw together that would satisfy my craving, but I wouldn’t have to make anything. Wa-la! No bake banana bread bites.
Wow, these things are tasty! I could seriously eat a whole batch in one sitting – but I refrained…kind of…I left three. 🙂 Okay, so let’s get to this recipe.
BANANA BREAD BITES
- 1 1/2 cups gluten free oat flour (you could also use 1 cup coconut flour instead if you have an issue with oats)
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 small pinch of stevia
- sprinkle of sea salt
- 1/3 cup mashed banana
- 1/3 cup almond butter
- 2 Tbsp. Raw Honey
- Optional add ins: 1/3 cup chocolate chips, 1/4 cup crushed walnuts
- 3-4 Tbsp. Almond Milk
1.) Add all the dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, stevia, and sea salt) to a large mixing bowl. Mix together well. Add the mashed banana, and stir in until well combined. If you are adding in the chocolate chips and/or walnuts, add them now. Mix well, and set aside.
2.) Add the almond butter and honey to a small sauce pan. Heat over low heat until melted together. Add to the mixing bowl and stir to combine. You will have a really crumbly mixture.
3.) Add 1 Tbsp. of Almond milk at a time to the mixture until the mixture is a consistency that allows you to roll it into small balls that stay together. I used 3 Tbsp. all together.
4.) Use your hands to make small balls of the mixture. Place in the refrigerator for 1/2 an hour.
That’s it! You’re good to go! Banana bread craving satisfied without having to put in the work of baking any banana bread!
You’re seriously going to LOVE these! So delicious! Enjoy!
