Peanut Butter and Banana Energy Bites

Sweet friend KB has recently been raving about her new power ball breakfasts consisting of oats, bananas, and all sorts of other yummies she throws in there.  So when Hubby and I had a bunch of bananas that were on their last legs we thought we'd go for it.  I eat breakfast every day, but have a habit of running late so thought these would fit the bill nicely.

After scouring the internet I decided just to go for it without a real recipe.  We don't have flax seed and don't really care for chia seeds so we kept to what we could find in the pantry.  The end result was pretty yummy and they're so easy to keep on hand!  

Peanut Butter and Banana Energy Bites

  • 2 large bananas, mashed (it ended up being about a cup)
  • 2 cups oats, uncooked
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • couple squeezes honey
  • 1/4-1/2 t cinnamon
  • small handful mini chocolate chips (we used semisweet because that's what we had)
  • Mash bananas in a bowl large enough to hold all the ingredients.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Refrigerate mixture for about 30 minutes or until you're able to roll into balls.
  • Roll into 1 inch balls.
  • Refrigerate to store.
  • Throw in whatever sounds good to you!  We've made them a few times and found that in this hive we like the cinnamon on the lighter side.  Sometimes we add more banana, sometimes we leave out the chocolate, it all really just depends on what's on hand.
  • You can make a large batch to keep in the freezer and just pull out a few at a time.  Freeze individually on a cookie sheet before putting into a giant Ziploc.  They defrost quickly.
  • Use a scoop to form the balls quickly and uniformly!


  1. Yum. I love those quick grab and go options.

  2. I made these recently. So healthy, easy and good!


Thanks so much for buzzing by! I look forward to hearing from you!
