Fairtrade Banana Oat Bites!

Fairtrade Banana Oat Bites

We adapted this recipe from Heidi Swanson’s 101 Cookbooks recipe for Nikki’s Healthy Cookie Recipe. We substituted in some Fairtrade goodies and added peanut butter because who doesn’t love peanut butter & bananas! It’s simple and delicious, with no added sugar and can be made gluten free if you seek out GF oats! Enjoy, Fairtrade banana lovers!!

  • 1 ½ cup mashed Equifruit Fairtrade bananas (about 4 small or 3 large)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ coconut oil (melted, but not hot)
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup Fairtrade shredded coconut (we used Camino’s unsweetened)
  • ½ tsp Fairtrade cinnamon (we used Cha’s true cinnamon)
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 6-7 oz Fairtrade chocolate chips (we used Camino’s bittersweet!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine bananas, vanilla, coconut oil and peanut butter. In a separate bowl, combine the oats, coconut, cinnamon, sea salt and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until combined, then fold in the chocolate chips. Place small balls of dough on a baking sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes (just before the bottoms start to burn)!

Final step: ENJOY!! Especially knowing these are good for your health, and the for farmers and workers who grew the products!

Fairtrade Banana Peanut Buttercups


Ingredients:IMG_5026

  • 1 cup Fairtrade dark chocolate chips (or Fairtrade bar, cut up into pieces)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk (regular or almond is best)
  • 1 Fairtrade organic Equifruit banana, peeled and sliced into equal rounds (for mini cups cut each round in half)
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth, your choice!)
  • 1 tablespoon Fairtrade coconut oil, (unrefined extra-virgin preferred)
  • 12 regular baking cups (or 24 mini’s)

Preparation:

  1. Heat the chocolate chips, milk and vanilla on low in a sauce pan (or microwave for any hard-working, time-pressed, mamas and papas out there!) Stir until chocolate is smooth and creamy. Tip: be careful not to burn! As the chips are covered in liquid, they’ll melt fast.
  2. Add a generous tablespoon of chocolate to each baking cup (there should be some left over).
  3. Place one piece of Fairtrade banana on top and press gently to keep it in place.
  4. Melt the coconut oil and mix together with the peanut butter. If the peanut butter is hard, heat it up to soften it a bit and continue mixing.
  5. Add a tablespoon of peanut butter mixture to each baking cup.
  6. Add remaining chocolate onto a final layer of each cup.
  7. Place in the freezer, and they will be ready to consume after about an hour!

Serve immediately after removing them from the freezer. They’re delicious when bananas are still frozen, like a mini scoop of ice cream!
