You guys!!!! These little bites of heaven are amazing. I have been seeing these pop up on my Pinterest feed and I thought to myself “I have to try making these little decadent frosty delights!” Everyone has their own version and this is my adaptation.
These are perfect for summer treats, a little bit of fruit, a dab of protein from peanut butter and sweetness from dark chocolate. Plus they are frosty and cool because they are frozen. Since it has been in the 110’s here in PHX for the past couple of weeks (which is pure torture) who couldn’t use a nice frosty treat to help cool them off.
Now these treats are by no means a clean cooking affair. You get messy, I mean peanut butter all over your hands messy. And don’t even get me started about all the chocolate drips on my counter. That is ok because the end result is soooo worth it.
Just a few tips I learned from making these. Number one, make sure you use Bananas that are not too soft as it will be hard to slice them. Number two, use a quality melting chocolate. I used dark chocolate chips with a dash of coconut oil. Oohhh and make sure you eat these frozen. I made the mistake of taking some to work for a snack and left them in my lunch bag in the fridge. They were a bit mushy inside the gorgeous chocolate shell, but still tasted fantastic.
Have fun with these, these are simple enough to get your kids involved and introduce them to the fun of cooking.
What a fun treat to make before the rush of back to school!
- 2 bananas, sliced
- ¼ Cup Organic Creamy Peanut Butter
- 6 oz Dark Chocolate Chips
- ¼ tsp Coconut Oil
In a small saucepan melt the chocolate chips on low heat with the coconut oil. Be sure to stir and not have the heat too high or your chocolate will burn and clump up.
Peel and slice the bananas.
On a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper start assembling the Banana Peanut Butter Treats.
Take one slice of banana, spread some peanut butter on it and cover with another slice of banana making a little sandwich.
Place the Banana Peanut Butter Bite on a fork and hold over the saucepan. Take a spoon and start spooning the chocolate over the bite until it is covered.
Place bite on baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Repeat process until all banana slices are used up and place pan in freezer.
Freeze for 1 hour then place bites in a re-sealable Ziploc baggie and store in the freezer for up to one week.
