Dark Chocolate Banana Bites

A friend introduced me to these sweet treats and now it’s my turn to pass them along!

They’re a healthy snack… easy to pop on the go!
My husband loves a few of them just before he works out; I like to have one (or two!) after I feed the baby.
Plus, this sweat treat is KID APPROVED. No dairy or eggs, either 🙂

The ingredients are simple:
✔️bananas
✔️nut butter (I used almond butter)
✔️unsweetened applesauce
✔️vanilla
✔️cinnamon
✔️nutmeg
✔️ground clove
✔️old fashioned oats
✔️dark chocolate chips
