My roommate and I have been obsessed with these little things!
Fortunately for us they are super healthy snacks.
I’ve had bananas for over a week and wouldn’t you know it, they are extremely, extremely ripe. Extremely.
I wanted to make banana muffins, but I need something healthy since I’m still doing this weight loss challenge with a group of friends. And I’m always in DIRE need of dessert after dinner, so these things are seriously perfect.
On Monday nights, you can find my roommate, Jess, and I watching The Following on FOX. We’re always munching on something while watching, perhaps the show is so stressful we’re calming ourselves with snacks! Whew, so glad I found a healthy option for watching this show. Every few minutes, I spy Jess going to the kitchen to grab these cookies. She LOVES them. She takes them to work and tries to hide them at her desk so she can save it for an afternoon snack, but I think that plan always fails.
4 ingredients & 3 steps. No sugar. No flour. Done in 15 minutes. Here we go!
Healthy Banana Chip Bites
makes 20 cookies
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 cup of old fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1.5 tablespoons of chia
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. Mash up the ripe bananas in a bowl. Add oats, chocolate chips, and chia. Mix it all together until well blended.
3. Drop in tablespoons of mix on a cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
Can these be any easier? The sweetness comes primarily from the bananas. The chocolate chips are optional but also gives the cookie some sweetness. I love the crunch of the chia too! If you’re really craving something sweet, add some honey to the cookie.
What do you think? Is this something you can try?
With age comes eating healthier right? What are some of your favorite healthy, homemade snacks?
