Gluten Free Banana Bread Bites

I love these!! I can just pop a mouthful of banana bread in my mouth whenever I feel like it! 
One of my nephews happened to be staying with us when I made these and ate about 7 of them in a row.  I decided not to tell him they were gluten, dairy, and egg free…

A gluten free cereal called, puffed millet, gives the speckled look to the banana bread bites without adding any crunch. They are soft and yummy.  Chocolate blends nicely with banana, but feel free to substitute  these mini chips with raisins.

The original recipe is, Best Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies, found in, The Super Allergy Girl -Allergy & Celiac Cookbook.  I thought they tasted so much like banana bread, I changed the name for my post and just a couple things in the recipe.

Weight watcher points are just 2 for each ball.
