Step Up to the Calorie Counter: No-Bake Banana Bites

Spring has sprung, which will take you outdoors and away from the kitchen. Try these nifty snacks on the go, courtesy of Nature Box.
Remember to look for low-salt and l0w-sugar ingredients — and try to find local honey.

Makes 2 dozen 1-inch balls
  • 1 cup NatureBox Banana chips
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter (or other nut butter of your choice)
  • 1/3 cup honey

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Crush the banana chips with the back of a butter knife (or roughly chop in food processor) and add to a large mixing bowl.

Add the oats and cocoa to the banana chips and mix together. Add the peanut butter and honey and stir well.

Place in the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes. Once chilled, remove from the refrigerator and form small 1-inch balls with your hands.

Place onto a baking sheet and chill for 15-30 minutes (until firm). Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
