cooking for one // banana energy balls

So, this isn’t really cooking but it is good food; so hey. This is actually a really simple recipe, I just kind of put a few ingredients together and hoped for the best. Luckily, they did turn out okay. There were no measurements, I just kind of eyed it out as per usual. Sorry if you hate that – it just works for me. These bite size treats are a nice little snack but they also made for a tasty treat after dinner. Really I just mixed a few simple ingredients together and then let them get cold and solidify a bit more. I was impatient, so I tossed them into the freezer for 10 minutes and then put them into the fridge for another 20 minutes.

So what did I mix? One ripe banana, mashed. About half a cup of quick oats. A little bit of cinnamon. A tablespoon or so of honey. And a generous blob of all natural, crunchy peanut butter. Oh, and sweetened coconut flakes. I simply mixed these together with my hands until the mixture was thick and sticking together easily. I then made bite size balls and set them on a plate. This made about ten balls, you could easily the double the recipe with another banana, adding a bit more coconut flakes and some more oats.

Enjoy this quick and easy snack!
