Looking for a snack that can be put together in minutes and uses all natural ingredients? Look no further than these banana nut bites. Bananas as a fruit are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. They are also packed with fibre as well as resistant starch (particularly in unripe banana) which acts like a soluble fibre and escapes digestion. The combination of fibre and resistant starch may help to moderate blood sugar levels between meals and slow stomach emptying. This could help reduce appetite – really important for fat loss goals.
The problem with most snacks is they’re either boring, take too long to prep or processed (so no good for you). That’s where these banana nut bites get the upper hand. They use only natural ingredients and take minutes to put together.
Half a banana, chopped into 7 coins
7 teaspoons of natural peanut butter
3.5 teaspoons of chia seeds

F – 35.5
It really is as easy as chopping, spreading and sprinkling. Instead of a snack there’s no reason why something like this couldn’t work as a desert. Why not try adding some natural Greek yoghurt for more flavour and nutrition?
On a final note if you’re concerned about the large hit of calories from the peanut butter making too much of a dent in your daily intake for your goals, reduce the portion size by half.
