Oatmeal Banana Pecan Bites
I wanted to make something to satisfy my dessert cravings without putting a lot of sugar in my diet. I came up with these banana bites that have oatmeal, dates, pecans, and of course…you guessed it, bananas. I thought these were pretty good, so I figured I’d share them with you! They are easy to store and are great on the go. Enjoy.
