Looking for more banana bread inspired recipes? Be sure to check out these other tasty recipes on our blog:
½ cup pitted dates
1-2 cups boiling water to soak dates (*save 3 tbsp of the date soaking water when you drain the dates)
1 cup oat flour (certified GF if necessary)
1 ripe banana
2 tbsp ground flax
⅓ cup shredded coconut (plus extra for coating)
⅓ cup chocolate chips (vegan ones if desired)
Soak dates in boiling water for ~10-15 mins. Drain dates and save 3 tbsp of the water.
Add the dates, water, oat flour, banana, flax, coconut and chocolate chips to a food processor and blend (since the dates will still be warm the chocolate chips will melt slightly in the batter). NOTE: the batter will be very sticky and moist but thats okay!!
Roll batter into bite-sized balls and coat with shredded coconut (wet your hands before rolling to prevent the batter from sticking to your hands as much).
Let the bites firm up in the fridge for at least 10 mins before enjoying. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
