3-Ingredient Banana Oat Bites

Bananas are probably my favorite fruit ever and that’s why I enjoy making so many little banana treats, like banana bread. This time, I wanted to focus on something that contained a bit fewer calories and maybe a boost of energy. These banana oat bites, depending on the size you choose to roll and the add-ins you include, come to around less than 40 calories each. For me, they stave off that sugar craving and I love the flavor, especially fresh from the oven. These three-ingredient banana oat cookies are simple and scrumptious, worth packing up for a trip hiking or on a picnic!
