Banana bites are a simple and easy snack – you just need some time (because they need to set up in the freezer). They keep for a few days and are full of goodness. Time to make some healthy snacks.

Let’s get started!

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 1/3 cup of natural peanut butter (cold)
  • 100g of dark chocolate

First, like usual, gather all of your ingredients. Be sure your peanut butter is cold, other wise it’ll run all over the bananas and make quite a mess.

Time to cut your banana, cut it into about 1/2 inch slices. Then, top with a dab of peanut butter and finish off with another banana slice. It works best if you use two banana slices that are side by side (that way they share one cut) and will sit up nicely.

Then, place them on a baking tray covered in parchment paper. Freeze for 1 hour.

Put the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave on melt – don’t burn it. You want it nice and melted.

Once the chocolate is ready, grab your frozen banana bites from the freezer.

Dip them, carefully, into the chocolate and then lay them back on the parchment paper to set. I put mine back in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Then, I portioned them off – they keep well in the freezer, yet are best for a lunch time snack when they’ve had a bit of time to defrost in your lunch bag.

You could use Nutella in the middle and dip them in melted peanut butter chips – that would be good, too, I bet. Add a few chopped nuts to the melted chocolate, or even on the inside peanut butter part. There are a lot of options. Either way, thanks for visiting and I’ll see you again soon.
