Gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free… but so delicious! This recipe is adopted from Heidi at 101 cookbooks; it has become a go-to recipe when I want something a little bit sweet but still very wholesome. This simple recipe features mashed bananas, oats, coconut, and ground almonds (and perhaps a smidgen of chocolate!) for a great treat for kids of any age.
