Frozen Banana Ice Cream Chocolate Treats

Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened plant milk, such as almond, soy, cashew, or rice
  • ¼ to ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1½ cups Grape-Nuts cereal

Instructions

  1. In a food processor combine the first five ingredients (through bananas). Cover and process until well combined. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add oats; mix well.
  2. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper. Place cereal in a small bowl.
  3. Using the large end of a melon baller or a small spoon, scoop up a small chocolate ball and drop it into cereal. Roll ball with a spoon or your fingers to cover completely with cereal. Gently place the ball on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chocolate mixture and cereal.
  4. Place baking sheet in the freezer until treats are frozen. Transfer treats to an airtight container. Store in the freezer.
