I’ve been trying to kick sugar for a while now. Habitually it was easy to sit down after dinner and crush some vegan ice cream or some other treat. I’m on this little junket to optimal health, though, so I needed to figure out some way to get some sweetness at night but also make it something that is good for me.
I searched around the internet for a decent recipe and most had some sort of non-vegan item in them, the most prevalent being honey. As we all know now, there are so many replacements for that though, it was not an issue to switch things around. Most had chocolate chips and while I do love chocolate chips, I ended up swapping them out for this recipe. You can’t get any easier than this recipe!
2 Ripe Bananas
2 cups quick oats
1/4 cup raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 scoop Naked Pea Protein
Peel the bananas and mash them in a bowl. You want them as ripe as possible, the riper they are the sweeter they are; that’s why banana bread is so righteous because those bananas are so ripe they are near death. Add a cup and half of the oats and the other ingredients to your bowl and mix well. Depending on how sticky the mix is, add the other half a cup of oats.
Roll the mixture into one inch balls and let sit for two hours.
You are ready to go. These should last a few days in the fridge. They will get darker as the days go on and those bananas start to pass. I wouldn’t go beyond a week as long as they are in an air tight container.
