This recipe is finger licking good and is incredibly simple to make. It has only four ingredients and involves no cooking, just 4 hours in the fridge to allow the 'bites' to set.



Mashed banana, healthy banana bread option


Containing only natural sugars, these bites are a yummy, healthier snack for when you need a sugar hit. They also make a great dessert or finger food at a party.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Fridge Time: 4 hours (at least)
Makes: 16 balls

Ingredients
2 bananas
1 cup almond meal
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla essence

Method
Mash the bananas with a fork in a mixing bowl.

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.

Is their anything else you can use instead of almond meal? Allergic to nuts
I'd give coconut flour a go, or a mix of coconut flour and flaxseed meal. It will give the bites a coconutty flavour, but that might be quite nice!
I made these last night and they are still soft and soggy. Is that the way they are meant to be.
No, they shouldn't, that's disappointing for you! Did you leave them overnight in the fridge? If they end up being soggy, I'd just add a little more almond meal to balance them out.
Mmmm! I love the look of these! Will definitely be making!
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!

Hi Ian, sure, so long as I'm credited, go ahead! If you could send me the link to your blogspot that would be great :)
i would like to share this on my blog spot

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.
When you remove these from the fridge, will they stay firm or should they be served immediately. please

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.
