Banana Oat Bites – Sugar, Dairy & Gluten Free!

Banana Oat Cookies

I first made these cookies over a month ago and have made them 3 times since in order to try out different things to perfect the recipe. These are not really cookies at all, more like oatmeal in a cookie form. Feel free to eat them for breakfast, as a snack or as a dessert. Now, I know these would be good with some chocolate chips but I was trying to give people a no added sugar option :). However, I would love to hear your modifications so please comment below with additions you tried. Happy healthy baking!
