These chocolate banana bread bites are a quick and easy snack you can whip up in minutes.
I love making one or two batches of energy bites to have during the week because they’re such a great, quick grab and go snack to have on hand. I don’t know about you, but I can sometimes get pretty hangry between meals or when I’m out and about doing a million things.
I’ll often stash some bites in a tupperware and throw them in my purse if I know i’ll be doing lots of errands. If I haven’t prepared energy bites, I’ll find the closest store to buy hummus or baba ghanoush with carrots and pita bread. I think I could probably live off hummus and pita bread – it’s a staple in my life.
Seriously, these chocolate banana bread are a game changer and a quick way to satisfy a banana bread craving with no baking required. If you’d like these bites without chocolate, check out my classic banana bread bites.
