Get a natural energy boost with my clean eating No Bake Banana Bread Bites recipe!
Tax season is officially over and now I'm getting ready for a couple of months of pretty frequent travel. With all that travel, I've been brainstorming ways to stay healthy while I'm gone... so much so that yesterday's post was all about it! The last thing I need to catch a bug in the middle of all this!
One thing I've been doing is thinking about different healthy snacks I can make to carry with me, so I resist the urge to eat airport convenience food. I'm all about enjoying whatever food my destination is known for while I'm there... but when I'm in transit I'd rather keep it healthy. With my recent trips to Washington, DC and Dayton, Ohio I was shocked at the lack of decent choices in the airport. The airport food in Atlanta was awful! But that's a subject for another day...
Luckily my No Bake Banana Bread Bites recipe will be perfect for a spring/summer take along food for my travels... and hopefully yours too!

These babies are full of natural energy from oats and bananas. I also added some coconut flakes for additional flavor and tropical thoughts. Plus you satisfy that sweet tooth with just a few dark chocolate chips.
This No Bake Banana Bread Bites recipe takes less than 10 minutes to put together! They also are a great way to use up those overripe bananas when you don't have time to actually bake.
