Updated Dec 21, 2015


  • 1 cup Cheerios™ + Ancient Grains cereal
  • 1 cup pitted dates, packed

  • 1/2 ripe banana, mashed (about 1/4 cup)

    Generously grease 24 mini muffin cups with coconut oil, or spray with cooking spray. In large bowl, place cereal; set aside. In food processor, add dates, walnuts and 1 tablespoon water; pulse in 1-second bursts about 30 seconds or until finely chopped. Add oats, banana and chia seed; process until mixture comes together into a ball.
