I love making this for folks who already enjoy healthy treats as well as for those who are skeptical that healthy can be yummy.
I made the original version quite delicious, but that was earlier in my strive-to-be-healthier days.. and now I altered a few things to make them even better. NOTHING BUT WHOLE FRUIT WITH FIBERS TO SWEETEN (except in the choc. chips), LOTS OF HEALTHY FATS, AND PLENTY OF SUSTAINING FIBER…
THIS IS MOIST AND A DELIGHT TO EAT AND SHARE!

New and Improved and Better for you~~
NEW AND IMPROVED recipe:
6 bananas, ripe, mashed (moist base)
1 heaping cup each of old-fashioned oats, shredded coconut, & cooked quinoa (sprouted overnight then cooked for 15-20 minutes until done and not dry)
1 cup pecans (or any nut you prefer.. or replace with seeds if nuts are not your preference)
1.5 cup chopped farmers market fresh dates…caramel-ly..mmm
2 cups of chocolate chips (used barley sweetened one) or 1 cup of raw cacao nibs
1/8 cup of raw mesquite powder
1 Tablespoon each of white chia seeds and hemp seeds
few pinches of himalayan pink salt
dollop of vanilla bean paste
dashes of cinnamon
Mix up and put in fridge or 20 min or so and preheat oven to 380.
Scoop into little dough balls and bake at 2:50 for about 30 minutes… until lightly browned.
note: (you can substitute fresh apple sauce if you would like, but then I would add a flax egg to bind the ingredients more or just press each doughball into the scooper more firmly.)
Eat and share, share, share…and eat, again!
WHY? BECAUSE HEALTHY MAKES ME (& OTHERS) HAPPY!
I shared this on my most recent film set and felt great about it, especially when both the gals and guys enjoyed the treats when we wrapped! (…along with another awesome LMEON-y DREAAMMMMY Paleo treat… recipe for that coming soon!)
more and more amazeballs to eat and share!
