PB & Cocoa Banana Bites
Serves: 15 balls
  • 1 ½ cup uncooked rolled oats (cannot substitute quick oats)
  • 2 medium bananas (slightly overripe for best flavor )
  • 1 tbsp. agave nectar or honey
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • ½ cup uncooked quinoa
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ½ tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 scoops protein powder (include if you are making the satiating snack version versus the sweet little bite)
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °F. Heat peanut butter, coconut oil and honey in a small saucepan, stirring continuously. Do not let the peanut butter mixture reach a simmer. Cook until liquid consistency.
  2. In a large mixing bowl., mash bananas, add quinoa, cocoa powder, and rolled oats to the bowl.
  3. Knead all the ingredients together using your hands.
  4. Add the heated peanut butter mixture to the “dough.” Form 1½ inch balls with hands.. Bake for 20 minutes and rotate halfway through. Remove balls from the oven and allow cooling. Baking makes them taste slightly sweeter, however, they don’t need to be baked! Just refrigerate after forming the balls.
Cooked without protein Powder, each ball has 65 Calories and 2 grams protein
