Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Banana Bites

November 2, 2013

This is definitely one of my favorite desserts!

 

None of my other desserts have been as popular and tagged/commented on Instagram as this one :) I’m so glad that people enjoy it as much as I do!

 

It’s simple, easy and a much healthier option for those days when you’re really craving a cheat meal but want to stick to your diet.

 

Ingredients (makes approx. 14 bites)

 

  • 2 bananas (not too ripe)

  • organic natural peanut butter

  • 50 -70 gr. 80% dark chocolate

  • unsweetened coconut flakes

 

Quick tip: chopped nuts, chia seeds, licorice root powder, etc. also make great toppings!

 

Method

 

  • Prepare a tray lined with parchment paper or foil.

  • Peel and cut the banana into slices. Put half of the slices on the tray, the other half on the side.

  • Using a teaspoon or a knife, carefully smear a layer of peanut butter on the slices placed on the tray.

  • Once all slices have peanut butter on them, top them off with the other banana slices. Set aside.

  • Prepare a plate with the unsweetened coconut flakes. Set aside, beside the tray.

  • Melt your chocolate. Either by water bath (bain marie) or microwave whatever suits you best.

  • Have your tray, plate with coconut flakes and melted chocolate all in close proximity to each other.

  • Using a fork, spear the banana bites and dip one-by-one into the melted chocolate

  • Once you’ve covered the sides and bottom, let excess chocolate drip off and carefully place the banana bite back on the tray.

  • Once all the banana bites have been chocolate-covered. Use a teaspoon to scoop a bit of the melted chocolate and gently cover the top bit that’s missing chocolate and immediately drizzle the coconut flakes on top.

  • Cover the tray and place in the freezer for 20-30 min before serving.

  • Enjoy!
