Ingredients (for 3 truffles or 1 serving):

  • 1/2 cup raw oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat pancake mix
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 4.5 inches of banana (cut into three 1.5 inch pieces)
  • 1.4 cup whole pecans, crushed
  • Maple syrup to taste

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine first five ingredients in small bowl.
  • On a plate, spread out crushed pecan.
  • Grease cookie sheet.
  • Separate mix into three piles.
  • Take one segment of banana and coat in the pancake mix.  It will be kind of sticky and wet, but that’s fine.
  • Form ball around the banana segment, and then roll in the crushed pecans.
  • Place on greased cookie sheet.
  • Repeat with other banana segments.
  • Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
  • Remove, plate, and drizzle in maple syrup.
  • Enjoy!
