- 1 large or 2 small bananas
- 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 1/4 cup cereal (I used Special K)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1-2 tablespoons white chocolate chips
- 2-3 tablespoons raisins
- 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
Mash bananas in a medium or large bowl. Add in the cocoa powder, peanut butter, and maple syrup. Then, add in the oats, the cereal (I crunched up the Special K before mixing in), white chocolate chips, raisins, and sunflower seeds.
Place a piece of parchment paper over a flat plate or cookie sheet. Make 1-2 inch balls with the mixture (it might be a little gooey), and place them an inch or so apart on the parchment paper. Cover, and place in the freezer for about an hour. You can eat them straight out of the freezer, and they will be firm and cold (kind of like a delicious frozen banana), or let them sit out for a little while, and they will be chewier.
The best part about this recipe is that you can easily add and subtract ingredients, depending upon what you have in your cupboards, and how healthy you’d like them to be
