Gluten-Free Banana Bread Bites

I love these little gluten-free banana bites! I can pop a mouthful of banana bread into my mouth whenever I feel like it! One of my nephews happened to be staying with us when I made these, and he ate about 7 of them in a row. He had no idea they were gluten, dairy, and egg-free.

Puffed millet gives a speckled look to the banana bread bites without adding any crunch. They are soft and yummy.  I have also used puffed quinoa in this recipe.

The chocolate blends nicely with the banana, but substituting these mini chocolate chips with raisins is yummy too. The original recipe is called Best Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies, found in, The Super Allergy Girl -Allergy & Celiac Cookbook.

Weight Watcher points plus are just 2 points for each banana bite.
