Healthy Banana and Date Snack Bites

Healthy Banana and Date Snack BitesBanana and Date Snack Bites are delicious, healthy and super easy to cook. They have only five ingredients and are freezable. Ticks every box for snack food right there!

While they are best served warm, they taste just as good cool too. They’re soft and moist, sweet and just a tad crunchy and perfect with a cup of tea. It’s something about a hot chai that makes these all the more better.

I keep a few in the freezer at work for when those 3pm sweet cravings hit hard. They’re also great for a pre or post workout boost.

I cook these Healthy Banana and Date Snack Bites  in a muffin or cupcake tin so it makes portion sizes super easy too.
