Coconut Rough Bites

If you're looking for a sweet yet healthy bite of energy, and have a couple of ripe bananas on hand then whip up a batch of these bites!  Packed full of coconut, their flavour reminds me of the Australian "Bounty" chocolate bar. So simple and easy, they are great to have on hand when the sweet tooth comes calling.
