Do you guys remember those banana-coconut snakaroos I picked up at Marshalls a few weekends ago? Well, they were amazing, but that small bag was seriously $9, which was a lot crazy, but I was feeling frivolous.
Fast forward two more trips to Marshalls and my mouth was watering for them again but I wouldn't let myself splurge. Instead, I picked up a few missing ingredients and attempted to make them the other night. And guess what: amazeballs. Yep. A-maze. Balls. Or, bites. Either way, here's how I did it:
* 1 banana preferably super ripe, but mine wasn't
* 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
* 1/3 cup rolled oats
* 4 tbsp coconut oil
* 2 tbsp chia seeds optional
* 3/4 scoop chocolate protein powder optional
Mash it all together with a fork. If it's too dry, add some coconut oil. If it's too wet, add some coconut and/or oats.
Once you get a sticky, yet thick consistency--I seriously eye balled all the ingredients so my measurements are estimates--use your hands and make bite size balls.
More like two-bite, sized balls.
Eat immediately or refrigerate and share with friends who appreciate healthy snacks that don't taste healthy.
