Coconut Banana Snacks

My husband brought home something he bought at a store that were similar to these, but they had a funny taste.

I liked the concept though, so I made my own, and they turned out really well. They are a nice sweet snack to have around. They are healthy, and easy to make.

INGREDIENTS:

1.5 Cups Unsweetened Organic Shredded Coconut

1/2 Cup Almonds

1/2 Cup Walnuts

3 Bananas

2 Tbls Chia Seeds

1 Tbls Agave (or honey, or sweetener of your choice)

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Pinch Salt

DIRECTIONS:

If you don’t have a dehydrator, preheat oven to the lowest setting – ussually 180.

Put the walnuts, almonds and chia seeds in a food processor and grind.

Transfer into a medium sized mixing bowl. Add coconut, salt, and mix.

Add 3 peeled bananas to the food processor and puree. Then, add the agave, vanilla extract, and pulse for a few seconds.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix with a spoon.

Scoop balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 180 for 1 hour, or dehydrate in a dehydrator at 105 for 4 hours.
