Makhana & Peanut Bites

These makhana and peanut bites are chewy and soft. Bananas give these snacky bites sweetness while making them nutritious. In a refrigerator, the bites last for four to five days.


  • 1 cup makhana powder
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • ¼ cup jaggery
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • ½ banana
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips


  • In a deep bowl, add the peanut butter, jaggery, vanilla and banana. Mash the banana using a fork and mix all the ingredients well.
  • Beat the mixture.
  • Gradually add the baking powder and makhana powder and keep mixing.
  • Add the chocolate chips and mix the dough. Move the dough into an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Grease a baking tray lightly and preheat your oven to 180˚C.
  • Pull the dough out of the fridge and make small balls out of it. Place the balls on the tray and press them with a fork.
  • Bake at 180˚C for 15 minutes. Let the bites cool in the oven for 5 minutes and then outside till they are fully cooled.
  • Enjoy your chewy and extremely tasty makhana-peanut treats!
