Super Easy Date, oat, and banana bites

Kerry Brouillet the founder of Loving Life With Lemons has just shared another of her healthy sweet treats with us and we can’t wait to try this one!

She writes - Do your kids enjoy a sweet treat after school? Mine certainly do, so I’m always thinking of ways I can get more nutrients and filling ingredients into that after school snack, but still satisfying enough so they don’t keep asking me for more food before dinner!

This is it !! Using the bananas and dates from my 2 week Herogo box this week I made my Golden Date, Oat and Banana bites! They are so satisfyingly sweet with no added sugar, using only healthy ingredients, this makes a great afternoon snack or fuel before kids afternoon sports activities!! Also makes a great afternoon treat for mum with a cup of tea or match latte!

Hope you enjoy!
