BANANA BREAD ENERGY BALLS

 These banana bread energy balls make for a deliciously sweet yet healthy snack. They’re filled with nutritious, good-for-you ingredients and are easy to throw together. Just toss everything into a food processor, roll the dough up, and that’s it!

You’ve probably heard of bliss balls, protein balls, energy balls, and so on. Essentially, they’re all the same bite sized treats made from energy-boosting ingredients. From healthy fat to fiber to protein, they’ve got it all. Not to mention, they only takes 10 minutes to make.



INGREDIENTS

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats

1/2 cup mashed banana, from one medium banana

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup pecans

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt


INSTRUCTIONS

Add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse the mixture for 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides, then blend again until the mixture is fairly smooth, with a slight bit of texture. The dough will likely start to roll around the food processor when it's blended enough.

Scoop a ball using a medium cookie scoop and roll it in between your hands. Then place it on a parchment lined plate or baking tray. Continue this process until you've used up all the dough.

Chill the balls for 30 minutes to firm up, then enjoy!


LISA'S TIPS

If the balls don't hold together, it's likely the texture is too big. Just put it back in the food processor and pulse for a finer texture.

The balls will be a little soft when you first roll them, but they'll firm up as the oats absorb the maple syrup.

This is the cookie scoop I use and love.
