Sweet Potato Banana Bites
A few notes about these Sweet Potato Banana Bites:
- They’re not super sweet, but they’re sweet enough for me!
- They’re gluten-free and dairy-free!
- You can eat them for dessert, for an afternoon snack or before a workout
- The recipe is very forgiving so your measurements don’t have to be exact.
Here’s how you make them:
These were inspired by my girl Gabby’s 2 ingredient sweet potato bites! I did a little experimenting because I wanted a version that would satisfy my sweet tooth for dessert (hence the chocolate chips). I had no idea whether or not the combination would work, and to be quite honest, when I first tasted them warm I didn’t like them that much. I actually like them better cold, and I eat them straight out of the fridge…but some of you might prefer them warm. I was impressed how much they puffed up and resembled muffins even with no flour/baking soda/etc.
Feel free to customize by using your favorite nut butter. I’ve made them with peanut butter, almond butter and sunflower seed butter- all delicious. You can also mix-in things like chia seeds or fruit instead of chocolate chips- I love mixing in frozen blueberries or fresh cranberries!
If you’re looking for something like this that’s a little bit sweeter, you should definitely try my Healthy Brownie Bites! With just two extra ingredients, I transformed my sweet potato bites into a healthy, bite-sized chocolate dessert!
