Cacao Oatmeal Bites



These taste like little portions of cacao oatmeal, sweetened with banana.  They are light and healthy, and I drizzled a few with melted nondairy chocolate to serve as dessert to friends.  I was surprised everyone enjoyed them, as they are less sweet that they seem.  They are super filling though, so it's a good way to satisfy your hunger, and the healthy filling fiber will keep you from over indulging.

Cacao Oatmeal Bites


1 mashed overripe banana
1/4 cup sunflower seed butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1-1/2 cups gluten-free quick oats


1.  Melt mashed banana and sunflower seed butter and applesauce in a pan and stir in vanilla, cacao powder and oats.

2.  Roll cookies into balls and flatten slightly onto a cookie sheet; chill for a few minutes to set.
3.  Optional: drizzle nondairy chocolate onto the cookies for a dessert, or leave plain for a snack or breakfast cookie.
