Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites

The perfect snack and/or dessert to have in your freezer when you are craving something sweet!

I’m not normally a huge fan of healthy substitutes for desserts, especially when it comes to ice cream. Frozen bananas are the exception though! I actually like banana nice cream better than banana flavored ice cream! Plus, this dessert is a combination of some of my favorite ingredients (frozen bananas, chocolate and peanut butter) so there was no way I could end up not loving this.

Note: I added cacao nibs inside the banana sandwich for extra crunch factor and nutrition, but this is completely optional!

Instructions:

  • Cut ripe bananas (yellow with many brown dots) into small slices. Spread your favorite nut butter and cacao nibs (optional)7o4We8h+SZWN0F6ItzkzTQ_thumb_1576.jpg
  • Place banana sandwiches on parchment paper (for easy removal) and freeze overnight (or for a couple of hours)
  • For chocolate dip
    • Simmer water (boil and then keep on low heat) in a small saucepan.
    • Place 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a heat safe bowl
    • Place bowl with chocolate chips on top of pot with simmering water. Keep pot cooking on low heat (otherwise chocolate will overcook, slow and steady wins the race!)UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_15c9.jpg
    • Stir dip gently and when all the chocolate is melted, dip you frozen banana sandwiches half way through the dip
    • Freeze again and enjoy!
