Energy bites, bliss balls, round little snack things… Whatever you call them, they are a great snack and are packed with nutrients so are the perfect pick-me-up. Typically the flavours can be a bit predictable so we’ve given them a bit of a shake up with three exciting flavours that you’ll fall in love with. Super easy, super tasty, super nourishing. What more could you want?

Banana French Toast Ingredients:

1 cup oats 
3 tbsp dried banana 
medjool dates 
2 tbsp maple syrup*
Pinch pink himalayan salt

Method:

Place the dried banana and date in a small bowl and cover with hot water. Leave to soak for about 10 minutes.

While the bananas and dates soak, add the oats to a food processor or high speed blender and blend until they resemble fine breadcrumbs.

Drain the banana then add them with the maple syrup and salt to the oats. Blend until a sticky dough forms.

Taking about a tablespoon at a time, roll the mix into balls and repeat until all the mixture is used up.
