Frozen Banana Bites
Frozen Banana Bites are coated in healthy things like peanut butter, ground flax seed or trail mix and then dipped in chocolate.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
- 2 or 3 bananas sliced
- Topping - peanut butter, peanuts, brazil nuts, or almonds, chopped, chopped nuts , ground flax seed, or even Skittles
- ½ cup dairy free chocolate chips
- 1 - 2 tablespoons soy milk
Slice the bananas into bite-size chunks and cover the top and bottom in an assortment of your favorite toppings. You might want to press those yummy toppings into the banana slices just a little bit. At this point you can freeze the banana slices. Just place them on a tray and place that tray in your freezer for a bit while you prepare the chocolate. Or you can melt the chocolate and begin dipping right away.
Place your chocolate in a small saucepan and melt over low heat. Add the soymilk and stir well. Because you're going to freeze these treats, it's OK if the chocolate is a little on the thin side. I found that having the chocolate thinner made it easier to spread evenly over each banana slice. First place a piece of waxed paper on a tray that will fit in your freezer. Hold a banana slice in one hand and using a spatula cover it with the melted chocolate. Place the banana slice (chocolate coating side down) on your waxed paper and place more melted chocolate on top. Use a small butter knife to spread the chocolate around the top and over the sides. You can be as neat or as messy as you want. I promise you they'll taste great either way!
I also decorated each slice with a little bit of the topping. So if the banana slice featured chopped peanuts inside, I placed a few chopped peanuts on top. I like surprises, but not always in my food!
