Hi everyone!

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.

Ingredients for this No Bake Banana Bread Bites recipe…

Most of these ingredients for this No Bake Banana Bread Bites recipe are probably already in your pantry.

 

Substitutions?

You can also easily make these gluten-free by using gluten-free oats!  If you need or want to make this vegan or dairy-free you can switch out to these chocolate chips.  If you have a peanut allergy feel free to use another nut or seed butter like this almond butter.

 

How to make these no bake balls…

  1. Mix all the ingredients together until well combined.
  2. Form into balls.
  3. Place on a cookie sheet to firm up in the fridge.
  4. Once they set, transfer and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

If you need a new set of Tupperware, I love THIS one.

I’m off to pack now!  I have to pack for two trips by the end of the day.  I’m leaving for the Abacos tomorrow and get back Wednesday… then go to Chicago for a blog trip Thursday -Friday!

And oh yes… happy non-baking!  I hope you enjoy my delightful No Bake Banana Bread Bites recipe!

    Do these freeze well?

      I haven’t tried freezing this type but I think they would do fine!

    I’m not sure, but with this recipe you just add raw oats? I don’t need to cook the oatmeal? I plan to cook the oatmeal, just want to make sure.

    Do you have nutritional information? How many calories per serving?

    Could I substitute applesauce for bananas or what other fruits could be in place of bananas?
    My son loves these but is slightly allergic to bananas. He is so addicted to sugar and these are great to have around for him to help balance his addiction out.

    How long do they last and how should they be stored?

    • JulieWunder January 14, 2018 at 9:52 am - Reply

      Hi Lacey! Store in the fridge and they’ll last as long as the bananas would stay good… 5-6ish days.

    Anything I can substitute for peanut butter? My daughter is allergic to nuts.

    • JulieWunder June 9, 2017 at 9:31 am - Reply

      Is she allergic to seeds? You could try sunflower seed butter.

    These are great! I’m always looking for ways to use up overripe bananas. They go ripe before I can eat them. I love the sound of these bites. They have a good sweetness withe the chocolate chips and banana without being over indulgent. Perfect portable snack!
    Have fun on your trips!

    I ALWAYS travel with food. Protein bars of a wide variety, I bake stuff, freeze it, and take it with me.

    I actually enjoy McDonald’s salads, and we have one at our airport, so that is my go-to if we happen to be there around lunch time. And we always stop in the same Fridays in Atlanta, where I typically get steak & veggies & maybe sweet potato fries.

    Hope all goes well with your trips!
