Yumminess!!! Skinny Monkey Bites

I had the pleasure of making these skinny monkey bites two weeks ago and I've made them 3 times since.  The kids and I can't stop eating them!  I had it for breakfast today along with some strawberries.

When I make them I use PB2 in lieu of peanut butter to cut the fat.  I find baking them lessens the natural sweetness in them so I really prefer it raw.  I serve the raw dough in a cup like I would ice cream.  Talk about a breakfast treat!  It's SO good and yet so filling too.  My kids like them both ways, as a cookie and as a ball of oaty goodness.

The ingredients are simple:

 bananas, applesauce, oats, cocoa and PB2 (low fat peanut butter).

That's just five ingredients and no added sugar!  The pin/link to the recipe is below:

These look really really good, and naughty. It's nice to eat something that feels naughty but isn't. (Like cookies/cookie dough for breakfast.)

Do they taste very banana-y? I'm always looking for ways to eat more bananas, as I am not the biggest fan of them plain.

They do have a banana-like flavor. If you don't like bananas, I'd say use more applesauce instead. I think two mashed bananas are about 1 cup so, maybe 1 cup of applesauce would work instead?
