Hi everyone! Excited to be guest posting on Healthy Helper today! My name is Elaine Lin and I’m a sophomore at MIT majoring in computer science. In my spare time, I blog at FoodParsed and share recipes that you can actually make. 🙂 I’m excited to be sharing one of those recipes with you today!
There’s nothing better than freshly baked banana bread, correct? Unfortunately, so many recipes include a whole cup of sugar! Since bananas are already so sweet and yummy, you can use them to make naturally sweetened baked goods.
Similarly to these banana oat bars, these peanut butter banana bites rely only on banana for sweetness. A touch of molasses (the main flavoring in brown sugar) adds a special rich, dark flavor.
Starting from the basic peanut butter banana base, you can add in whatever mix-ins you like. Toss in chocolate chips for the class chocolate + peanut butter + banana combo, coconut for a tropical twist, or peanuts for extra crunch.
