Banana Energy Bites

Do your kiddos love bananas? I’d say bananas are certainly my little one’s favorite fruit. In fact, she’s basically on a banana-only fruit strike these days. I recently made these little no-bake Banana Energy Bites to have around for a snack and even I can’t stop eating them!

These energy bites are packed with banana, fresh grated apple, oats, nut butter, flax, and sweetened with honey! I’m a big fan of energy bites, especially at night when I get a sweet tooth, but don’t want to overindulge or in between meals. I love having these bites around to snack on as needed.

Disney World is such a magical place and I can’t wait to take my daughter there someday soon. Epcot has always been my personal favorite ever since I was little, but I think my little monkey would love Animal Kingdom as she is currently obsessed with all things animals at the moment as evidenced by our Animal Kingdom-themed contest photo!
