banana bread bites.

bananaWe were having a little sweets craving the other day, and these seemed to do the trick. Not quite a cookie, not quite banana bread – but definitely a combination of them both!  Good stuff!

Found the recipe over here.

2 very ripe medium bananas
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch sea salt
2 Tbsp flax seed
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp peanut butter
2 Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup  flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup semisweet dairy-free chocolate chips

  1. Preaheat the oven to 375. In a large bowl, mash the banana then add baking soda, baking powder, salt, flax seed, vanilla extract, peanut butter, agave nectar, olive oil and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  2. Add in the flour and rolled oats and stir.
  3. Add  the semisweet chocolate chips and stir until just combined.
  4. Scoop slightly rounded 1 Tbsp measurements of the batter and drop onto a prepared baking sheet  Space about 1 inch apart, then slightly press down with back of spoon.
  5. Bake for 10-11 minutes or until they appear set. You aren’t going for brown edges – you want them moist and just cooked. Let cool slightly on cooling rack and serve warm or at room temperature. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
