Whether you’re searching for a sweet treat or breakfast on-the-go, these healthy banana chip energy bites will do the trick! Packed with energy, the hardest thing about making these is trying not to eat them all once they’re done! Combining almond butter and maple syrup makes a sweet flavor that is enhanced by notes of cinnamon and vanilla. The oats, flaxseed and chia seeds create texture and help soak up the moist mashed banana. Add chocolate chips and the final result is a bite reminiscent of cookie dough but much healthier.
