How to make vegan no bake peanut butter banana bread bites
My favorite thing about this simple and easy no bake banana bread bite recipe (besides the taste of course) is how easy they are to make! For this healthy snack recipe, you’ll only need a couple of kitchen tools making the clean up super easy. You’ll just need a mixing bowl and a plate!
First, in a large mixing bowl, mash your ripe banana with a fork. Then, mix in your salted crunchy peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. After that, add in the coconut flour and salt (if not using salted peanut butter).
Once the dough is ready, use your hands, roll 12 – 16 balls and evenly space them across a small tray or plate.
Then, in a microwave-safe bowl, add your favorite chocolate chips (I love using Lily’s Sugar Free Dark Chocoalte Chips) and coconut oil. Microwave for 20 seconds. Stir. Microwave again for 20 seconds. Stir. Continue this process until your chocolate is completely melted.
Lastly, dip a fork into the dark chocolate and drizzle across the bites and let them set in the refrigerator for 10 minutes before enjoying.
