Add the honey and vanilla essence and combine well.
Using your hands, shape the mixture into small balls. Place on a large plate and leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Turn over the balls and return to the fridge for at least 2 more hours. This will allow the underside of the balls to firm up as well.
Hi Helen, I actually didn't use any coating (which did make it rather sticky when rolling them up), although I was going to try coating them in desiccated coconut next time, which should be delicious. I love the sound of sesame seeds!
Hi Maddy. What coatings do you use to roll them up? I used almond meal (made in my coffee/spice grinder)and sesame seeds. It does make them easier to roll up. My partner was circling before I could even get them into the fridge!
Just a note - I tried making these again, using larger bananas and I pretty much doubled the almond meal. So depending on your bananas you may have to add more almond meal; it's probably best to have enough on hand so you can keep adding more until the mixture stays together well enough to form the small balls.
It depends how long you keep them out of the fridge for and if it's a hot day or not. I've carried them around in small containers throughout the day (though wasn't a super hot day) and they were fine, but I'd keep them in an esky when out to be safe or leave them in the fridge until you want to eat them.
