Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Banana Bites

These chocolate-dipped banana bites are extremely versatile. You can try dipping the bananas in slivered nuts or coconut for a fun variation. If you’re a big fan of PB&J, layer a teaspoon of strawberry or raspberry jam on top of the peanut butter. Tired of store-bought? Try this 3 ingredient strawberry chia seed jam. This makes this snack perfect for after-school cravings, but if you prefer a fancier approach, drizzle the chocolate over the bananas and serve them as a quick dessert!

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 bananas, sliced
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter (or any nut or seed butter)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips*

Directions:

  1. Spread about two teaspoons of peanut butter between two slices of bananas.
  2. Place all of the banana ‘sandwiches’ on a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Freeze for about an hour. This makes the bananas easier to dip into chocolate.
  3. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave for about 15–30 seconds at a time, stirring the chocolate in between each increment until melted. Add a drop of oil if the chocolate begins to clump, and stir it until smooth.
  4. Dip half of each banana bite into the melted chocolate and place it back onto the baking pan.
  5. Freeze the pan until the banana bites are completely frozen, and enjoy!
  6. Store any leftovers in the freezer in a sealed container.
