So the ingredients that you will need are:
(you can jazz these oat bites with any flavour… such as raisins or cacao nibs for extra fun)
Sourcing the ingredients is quite important in the recipe. You will need clean peanut butter – none of that sugar loaded crap you find on the shelves in supermarkets. Banana should be at the stage where its starting to turn and one more day would not be great to eat straight up. Coconut oil should be organic and raw (great options are Vita Coco and Lucy Bee coconut oil). Oats should be rolled oats.
Oats and Coconut Oil are amazing and full of skin boosting ingredients. The protein and great carbs and fats that comes from the peanut butter and oats combined will give you all the will power you need. Loaded with banana for all those important vitamins that fur fill a healthy diet.
So here we go…
- 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
- 1½ cups rolled oats
- ⅓ cup peanut butter
- Tablespoon of coconut oil
- Choc chips or raisins – if you want to add
Method:Preheat the oven to 170c (350f).
Combine bananas, oats, and peanut butter in a bowl and mix well, add the coconut oil and stir through. Fold in raising/ cacao nibs.
Drop bite-sized spoonfuls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Once cooled – I store mine in a Kilner Jar at easy reach. Great for me for a little healthy snack and perfect for those looking to build muscle by grazing on the right sources
