These tasty snacks require no baking, so they’re super easy to make and they’re good for you too.
1 ripe banana
1 cup dates
1 cup granola (I used my applesauce granola)
1/2 cup puffed rice
In a blender or food processor, blend banana and dates. In a mixing bowl, combine date mixture with granola and puffed rice. Form into balls and refrigerate. Allow them to sit overnight in the fridge before serving.
I thought these were good, but the kids wouldn’t even try them. Bennett played with one but I didn’t actually see him put any in his mouth. Cole wouldn’t touch them. I don’t think Tony tried any either. I don’t get it, I thought they would totally go for these but I guess something about the way they looked didn’t appeal to them. Since they didn’t actually TRY them, I can’t comment on whether they liked the taste or not. They were actually quite sweet considering there’s no refined sugar in them, so I think they would have liked them if they gave them a chance. It was very frustrating, but at least there were more for me to enjoy!
