Those Low FODMAP No Bake Oat Chocolate Balls remind me of my childhood. Whenever we wanted to have something sweet and there was no sweets in the house, we would make those easy oat chocolate balls. The only difference is that my Mum used to add a melted butter to it, which was much more calorific.

 

In this recipe the mashed banana is a binding agent and partially a sweetener.  I added just  2 tablespoons of sugar for sweetness.
