This is a recipe I’ve made differently each time I’ve made them. I will explain some of the other alternative ingredients, but here’s my favorite so far.
Prep time: <10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
*Preheat oven to 350F
You will need:
- 1 fairly ripe banana (no brown spots is OK)
- 50gr oats (gluten-free if available)
- 3 tbs peanut butter (I have not experimented with natural or homemade PB.. use at your own risk! Hell, comment if it works out for you)
- 1/4 cup golden raisins
- 4 tbs chia seeds
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
Start by slicing and then mashing the banana in a mixing bowl by itself. Add in oats, PB, and chia seeds and mix well. Fold in almonds and raisins.
Grease a glass baking pan and place teaspoon sized balls of dough onto pan (if you have a small ice cream scoop, I’m sure this would be easier–I use two teaspoons). After I have measured out all the dough, I pour a little oil on my hands and roll them into balls.
Yields between 12-14 balls. Place in oven at 350F for 15 minutes to set. Take out and allow to cool.
I have also made them with more oats, less chia seeds, no raisins, and with chocolate chips. Take out anything you don’t like and try out something you like.
I wrap them individually in tin foil so I can take them with me easily. However you choose to contain them, make sure you keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to take them or pack them for a snack.
