butterscotch banana bread bites

I usually make muffins or quick bread with my extra bananas but decided to give these bites a try. These will make your house smell like delicious banana bread, have the gooey texture of a soft baked cookie, and are so sweet and delicious you wouldn't even know there isn't added sugar (only that in the butterscotch chips)! My roommate didn't believe me when I told him they weren't "real cookies." Without eggs, added sugar or oil these bites are guilt free and satisfy that sweet craving. They were gone in two days because I couldn't stay away!! I had them for dessert, breakfast, and a snack before my run! I get nervous trying new pre-run foods but these were great.

Makes ~12 bites

What you need:
2 very ripe bananas
1 C oats
1/4 C butterscotch chips
1/3 C shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3 C chopped walnuts
1 tsp ground cinnamon

What you do:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a bowl, mash the bananas and combine all other ingredients. 
3. Shape the mixture into round bites and place on a cookie sheet. The recipe should make about 12 bites. I sprayed my cookie sheet with Pam to make sure they didn't stick.
4. Bake for 15 minutes and enjoy!
