Easy but delicious with few ingredients 👈🏻 my ideal quarantine recipe
In an effort to make sure my jean shorts still fit by the time summer comes, I’m definitely trying to slow my roll on the baking front😂 but! I still like having sweet things everyday, just ones that are on the healthier side, y’know what I mean?
These suuuuper easy cookie bites are actually SO easy that I honestly felt silly sharing the recipe, but it was requested on Instagram, so I figured why not put it here, too! They’re little soft & chewy pillows of magic that aren’t overly sweet (aka perfect for any bf who doesn’t have as much of a raging sweet tooth aka mine). They’re also gluten-free, vegan, and have zero added sugar, which makes them 110% acceptable for breakfast😉
I topped mine with Kween & Co Granola Butter and rainbow sprinkles because I believe everything should be topped with rainbow sprinkles, but you do you.
3-Ingredient Banana Oat Cookie Bites
1 cup of Rachel’s Overnight Oats (or scant 1 cup oats with 1-2 tbsp each of chia, hemp and flax seeds or just 1 cup oats)
1 medium sized, overly ripe banana
1/4 cup sunflower seed butter (or your favorite nut butter)
optional add-ins/toppings: sprinkles, chocolate chips, cinnamon, coconut, vanilla extract, raisins, anything!
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
- In a large bowl, mash the banana then add in the oats (and seeds if using), and nut or seed butter. Stir to combine completely, until all ingredients are wet from the banana. *If need be, add a tbsp or 2 of water
- Form dough into balls and place on baking sheet (these won’t spread or rise, so you can put them fairly close together!). Bake for 10 minutes.
- Let cool and then enjoy! Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
What have you been baking lately?! I think I may attempt vegan cupcakes for 2 this week so stay tuned…
