Banana Peanut Butter Snack bites are perfect for kids and adults, before a workout or as an afternoon work snack, and as a side! You don’t need a food processor, just a good old mixing bowl and rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
Nut butter: Feel free to sub peanut butter for natural cashew butter or sunflower seed butter.
PB powder: I tried this with hemp protein powder as well and it turned out great. Feel free to use other protein powders and let me know how it goes.
Add ins: Some of the Bites pictured had cacao nibs mixed in, and you could also add mini chocolate chips or raisins. I also rolled a few in unsweetened coconut flakes!
