Banana, Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

Serves: 6-8 balls

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tbs whole nut peanut butter
  • 2 tbs mini dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tbs honey (add more if you like)

Instructions

1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until ingredients are combined and sticky.

2. Using your hands, roll mixture (about 1-2 tbs) into a 1-inch ball, If it gets too sticky, dip your fingers in lukewarm water to help smooth the balls out.

3. (Optional) I put my energy balls in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to make the chocolate chips a bit more gooey. This step is totally optional (depending on your preference).

4. Refrigerate for around 1-2 hours, allowing the oats enough time to soften. (I prefer to leave it overnight)

Note: You can store in fridge for up to one week or in the freezer.
