Chocolate Drizzled Banana Bites

Success - Article sent! close

2 large bananas, peeled and sliced crosswise into ¾-inch-wide pieces (for 18 pieces)

3 tablespoons chunky almond butter or peanut butter

2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips

½ teaspoon coconut oil

2 tablespoon mini chocolate chips

2 teaspoons sliced almonds

Line a plate with a piece of parchment paper. Place the sliced bananas on the paper. Carefully spread ½ teaspoon nut butter on top of each banana piece. Place the plate in the freezer to chill for 30 minutes, until banana firms up.

In a small saucepan, stir the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil together over very low heat until melted. With a small spoon, drizzle some of the melted chocolate on top of each banana piece. Immediately sprinkle each pieces with the mini chocolate chips and almond slices and stick a toothpick in each (if desired). The melted chocolate should harden up quickly. If this does not happen, simply place the plate back in the freezer for 5-10 minutes more, until the chocolate hardens. Serve immediately.

Makes 18.

Cook's note: Store leftovers in a container in the freezer. Partially thaw on the counter for a few minutes, before serving.
