Half-baked banana balls

Half-baked, nutty and bananas. If you are what you eat, then Mr D and Mr H would probably say we’ve been overdoing it a little on these. And they would probably be right!

These beauties are the perfect snack – packed with slow-release energy, good fats and tonnes of vitamins and minerals, they are so easy to pop into your lunch box and take to work for a teatime pick-me-up. They are also so easy to pop into your mouth, which is where most of ours seem to end up.

Makes 12-15 little balls of yum


  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped (plus a few for decoration)
  • 1 cup gluten free oats
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Place the dates in a food processor and whizz until they form a sticky ball. In a mixing bowl, combine the dates with all the other ingredients and stir until it is all mixed together.

On a lined (or oiled with coconut oil) baking tray, spoon the mixture into little balls and decorate with pecans on top. Bake at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes, until they are golden brown on top but deliciously gooey and moist on the inside.

We hope you go loco for them too!

Love, Mrs H xx

  1. Just made these for breakfast and cooked them on a griddle like pancakes. They were super yummy and tasted like banana bread oatmeal pancakes 💕
