No-Bake Banana Bread Graham Bites

No-Bake Banana Bread Graham BitesI still don’t have a functioning oven so I had to get creative the other week with an almost-too-ripe banana that I didn’t want to spoil. These banana bread bites are rolled in crushed graham crackers and make for a perfect snack or healthier dessert. No-Bake Banana Bread Graham BitesNo-Bake Banana Bread Graham Bites

No-Bake Banana Bread Graham Bites

Yield: 10-12 balls

No-Bake Banana Bread Graham Bites

Ingredients

  • 1 c old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 10 pitted dates
  • 1 tbsp honey (can use maple syrup)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 graham crackers, crushed

Instructions

  1. Pulse the oats in a food processor until they make a coarse flour.
  2. Add in all the other ingredients except the graham crackers. Process until you have a fully-combined sticky mixture.
  3. Form into 1-inch balls and individually roll in the crushed graham crackers, pressing firmly until coated.
  4. You can eat right away or refrigerate for 30 minutes first, which I recommend.

Notes

These are good without the graham crackers, too! They'll be sticky though, so it's good to roll them in something (try coconut--delicious option!).

You can get creative with these. I’ve also rolled raisins in to the mixture after combining in the food processor and it was a great addition!
