Banana Crumble Energy Bites

Banana Crumble Energy Bites

A few weeks ago I had some friends round for dinner, and cooked James Duigan’s Banana Crumble recipe, and it was divine - gooey, crumbly, sweet but healthy - just right. So I wanted to make an energy bite that was similar. The oats, quinoa and almonds all provide a great source of natural protein, and the butters are a nice healthy fat. Banana’s are high in potassium, which plays a vital part in controlling blood pressure, so in a good tool in combating high blood pressure

The recipe is -

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tbsp of coconut butter
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/2 cup of quinoa flakes (or just add another 1/2 cup of oats)
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp of almond butter
  • 30g of vanilla protein powder (or 30g of ground almonds and 3 drops of vanilla essence
  • 2tbsp of maple syrup

1 - mash up the banana and heat up in a pan with the coconut butter/oil and half the cinnamon
2 - pour into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, mix week, and then roll into balls
3 - pop in the fridge to cool and store in an air tight container or freeze
