This is a great recipe if you’re looking for a healthy bite.
Though we have no food allergies in our house (thank God!) and don’t specifically avoid any certain ingredient, they are perfect for families who ARE avoiding specific things.
No white sugar. No flour. No eggs.
Less than 100 calories a piece.
As an added bonus, they are super tasty and nutritious. Perfect for a quick grab-it-and-go breakfast or a healthy little snack.
These would also be great in kids’ lunchboxes. I am always struggling to pack healthy for my gang. After packing five lunchboxes a day every weekday morning I seem to run out of fresh ideas sometimes.
I haven’t tried this yet, but these supposedly freeze well also.
I snagged the recipe off of this website.
Here’s the lowdown on what you need to make these:
5 cups rolled oats
2 1/2 cups overly ripe bananas
1 tsp salt
5 TB sweetener (you choose which one–I used honey)
2/3 cup Chocolate chips
2 1/2 cup water
1/4 cup + 1 TB oil (coconut or vegetable)
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 380 degrees F and line cupcake pans with liners. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then add in to the dry ones. Mix together well, than spoon into cupcake liners. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Makes about 24.
