I love a good grab-and-go snack—and these Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Snack Bites fit the bill! While these “cookies” aren’t a replacement for a true dessert when your sweet tooth is calling, these snack bites have enough natural sweetness to satisfy a craving for something sweet, while also being nourishing enough to give you some much-needed energy during an afternoon crash.
These snack bites have just three ingredients—oats, banana, and raisins—and after a quick trip in the oven, they make a chewy, soft, tasty snack bite that is perfect for mornings when you need a quick breakfast or afternoons when you are craving something sweet! These snack cookies are gluten-free, vegan, and free from added sugar. You can keep them plain or dress them up with a drizzle of chocolate for a touch of decadence.
Are these snack bites crunchy or chewy?
Thanks to the moisture of the banana, these snack bite cookies are moist, chewy, and soft—similar to the texture of a cereal bar—with a strong banana flavor.
What’s the best way to store these snack bites?
Keep these snack bite cookies in an airtight food storage container in your fridge for up to a week. To freeze, place them in a single layer on a parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet and freeze solid. Then transfer to a freezer-safe food storage container or freezer bag for up to 6 months. Defrost by setting them out on the counter for about 20 minutes before enjoying.
