Peanut Butter Bites

Peanut Butter Bites

Course Dessert, Snack
Servings 12


  • 1/4 cup peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed mashed
  • 1 T. maple syrup or honey
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts: almonds, walnuts, pecans, whatever (It is ok to leave them in fairly large chunks.)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  • In small pan, add nut butter, mashed banana, syrup or honey, vanilla.
  • Stir to mix well.
  • Cook and stir on medium heat until boiling. (It just kind of moves up and down slowly when it is “boiling”.)
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stir in oats and nuts.
  • Allow the mixture to cool.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. (If mixture isn’t cool enough, chocolate will melt. Not the end of the world.)
  • Spread on a parchment lined baking pan or cookie sheet and flatten and smooth with your clean hands. Preferably less than 1/2 inch thick.
  • Put in freezer.
  • After it is frozen, cut or break into about 12 pieces.
  • Put in plastic freezer bag and store in freezer
  • To serve, eat frozen or thawed. Can thaw for 15 or 20 seconds in microwave and eat with fork. Yum.

Variations (not yet tried, but we intend to!):

  • Add raisins or craisins instead of chocolate chips.
  • Add more nuts.
  • Add more banana.
