Banana Raisin Oat Bites

This easy recipe calls for bananas, raisins, and oats, three brilliant ingredients to satisfy a sugar craving. Now, I can't take credit for this recipe, but can point you to Davey Wavey and Blogilates, two fitness bloggers, who blogged about the recipe calling it a cookie.

This is not a cookie.

Cookies are Oreos, Chips Ahoy, four and fat creations crumbling into sugar. But, this recipe is perfect for a snack. It's also versatile, leaving room to add extra spices and sweetners.

The base of this recipe is a bite size ration of 1/2 of a medium banana and 1/4 cup of quick oats.You can can mesh the banana and oats together, bake, and eat. I chose to add raisins and make a "double" batch to eat and ponder the meaning of life.

Why do you look like an oatmeal cookie but taste like oats, bananas, and raisins?
The recipe:

Banana Raisin Oat Bites
Makes 6 average sized cookies


1 medium banana
1/2 cup quick oats
1 oz raisins
Cookie sheet greaser (butter, PAM... whichever makes your heart happy)


Cookie Sheet
Measuring cup


Instruct your banana to not be gooey! This doesn't work, and if your averse to gooey things use a spoon to make a pudding out of your banana. Measure your oats and raisins; add to your bowl. Mix till you have an almost even distribution of oats, banana, and raisins.

It's a dense bite. Filling, ah so pretty.
Grease your cookie sheet. Place spoonfuls of your batter onto the sheet. Place sheet into oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Bake, cool, and enjoy!
