Butterscotch Banana Bread Oatmeal Bites

When I picture banana bread in my mind, I envision a fragrant loaf of bread just begging to be sliced and topped with a smear of butter.

What if I told you that you can enjoy all the flavor of banana bread in perfectly portable mini bites?

And what if I told you that these bites are made without and butter, oil or added sugar. (Well, thereโ€™s sugar in the butterscotch morsels, but not in the dough, so I think that counts for something, right?) The bites are also eggless and yet somehow, theyโ€™re still completely delicious!

These bites taste great warm right out of the oven for a healthy dessert but can easily be stored in tupperware for a portable snack.

Butterscotch Banana Bread Oatmeal Bites


  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/3 cup finely crushed walnuts
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients together and thoroughly stir until everything is combined.
  3. Shape dough into small balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. The dough will be very moist and sticky, but it should hold its shape when formed into balls.
  4. Cook 15 โ€“ 18 minutes.
  5. Allow bites to cool and enjoy!

    I love when recipes don’t have any added sugar because it makes it totally okay to add tons of chocolate chips ๐Ÿ˜€ Those never count as added sugar, right?!

    yummy! I swear you must be raiding my kitchen, because just like yesterday’s recipe, I happen to have a thing of butterscotch morsels that I have no idea what to do with :-) These sound delicious but I’m not a fan of walnuts…wonder if there is a good substitution?

    Butterscotch and oatmeal are great together! My favorite cookies are cowboy oatmeal cookies, an oatmeal and butterscotch cookie. This looks like a great, healthier version of that.

    I recently tried this recipe and absolutely loved it! Great job on this! Very, very satisfying!!! I used frozen bananas that I had stashed for baking/dessert ideas, and they worked perfectly. I also used almonds instead of walnuts, since I always have a lot on hand. Again, worked great! I think chocolate chips or peanut butter chips would also work well. I will definitely make this again! Thank you so much!

    I made these last night and they are AMAZING!!! So good that I just had to come back and tell you! I actually changed them up just a little by adding a tablespoon of wheat germ and about 3 tbsps of honey. I also left my walnuts in pretty large pieces because I didn’t feel like cleaning the blender or food processor! :) lazzzyyyyyy!
