Here’s how you make them:
Sweet Potato Banana Bites
Made with just 4 main ingredients, these Sweet Potato Banana Bites are gluten-free and make a great snack!
- 1/2 c cooked, mashed sweet potato (approx 1 medium)
- 1/2 cup mashed banana (approx 1 medium)
- 1/4 c nut butter
- 2 eggs
- cinnamon, to taste
- Optional mix-ins: dark chocolate chips, fruit, chia seeds, etc
- Smash the sweet potato and banana together in a small bowl.
- Add the peanut butter, eggs and cinnamon & mix well.
- Stir in any additional mix-ins and spoon into greased mini muffin tins.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 18 minutes.
You could also try subbing another pureed fruit like applesauce in these. In my experience they're a bit less sweet but still good.
You can also add a splash of vanilla extract for more flavor if desired!
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!
