Today I want to share with you guys one of my new favorite recipes for a ridiculously simple and healthy dessert. I’ve seen this on pinterest over and over again so I decided to test it out and give you some tips to make it even easier.
First off you’ll need:
1-2 whole ripe bananas (depending on how many you want to make)
A few spoonfuls of all natural peanut butter (JIF is my favorite!)
Chocolate chips (I prefer the dark chocolate from Enjoy Life brand, they are dairy, soy and nut free!)
Now here’s what to do:
Step 1: First slice up you bananas into little chips, be careful not to go too thin or else it won’t be able to support the peanut butter.
Step 2: Spread a little glob on peanut butter on the banana slice, and then put another banana on top to create a cute little sandwich.
Step 3: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, fill it with your bananas and pop it in the freezer for 30-45 minutes. This will solidify the sandwich bites a bit to make it easy to dunk in the chocolate.
Step 4: While your bites are in the freezer, it’s the perfect opportunity to melt the chocolate! The easiest way to do this is by dumping the chocolate chips into a heat proof bowl and putting it over a pot of steaming water. Be careful not to let any moisture come in contact with the chocolate or else it’ll seize up and become super clumpy.
Step 5: The fun part! Drizzle your chocolate over the tops of the bites with a spoon, or grab them with a fork and dunk them into the bowl of melted chocolate. You can do as much or as little chocolate as you like, this is totally up to you!
Step 6: On the parchment paper, place them in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets and become hardened.
And that’s it! Super easy and delicious banana bites!
