Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites

It couldn’t be easier to make these delicious frozen banana bites with chocolate peanut butter! They’re the perfect mini treat to satisfy your sweet tooth!

Every now and then, I enjoy a little treat after eating lunch or dinner. The reason I crave something sweet isn’t always because I’m hungry, but rather because I just crave something sweet. As much as I love ice cream, I also like to come up with other ways to indulge, especially with natural sweeteners.

For me, some of my favorite foods are dried figs, fruit, dark chocolate, and peanut butter chocolate chip energy bites. Lastly, I recommend these frozen chocolate peanut butter banana bites. Making these little treats makes me happy because they’re adorable and just one or two satisfy my endless chocolate and peanut butter cravings.

If you dip only half of them in chocolate, you can pick them up without getting chocolate on your fingers while eating! Moreover, they look cute when you do this. Eat one straight out of the freezer, but be warned: there’s a chance of a convulsion.

You can’t get much simpler than that. Simply cut a few bananas in half to make small coins (the thinner the better, as long as it works!). In between the banana slices, spread natural peanut butter. Bake them in an oven lined with parchment paper or wax paper. After they’ve been frozen for a couple of hours, they’re ready to use.

Afterward, melt dark or semisweet chocolate chips with a little coconut oil after they’ve been frozen solid. It doesn’t taste like coconut at all, but if you don’t have coconut oil you can sub another neutral-tasting oil. Oil facilitates the melting of the chocolate chips and helps coat the banana slices in a thin coating.

Once you’ve dipped each sandwich in melted chocolate, you’ll need to put them back on the tray or baking sheet and place them in the freezer as fast as possible. It doesn’t take long for them to be ready to enjoy!

Are bananas and peanut butter good for you?

So you don’t have to hear it from me: fruit is good for you. No hard feelings. This lovely earth produces a delicious fruit that is full of vitamins and minerals our bodies need to thrive. Oh, and it tastes pretty good too. Sugar is in fruit, but it comes from a natural source and gives you energy and carbs. What a great candy!

So let’s go back to peanut butter and bananas. Peanut butter and bananas make for a delicious snack or dessert. To eat healthily, I like to have snacks and meals that contain healthy fats, lean proteins, and fiber. We can thank the peanut butter for the fat and protein, as well as the banana for the fiber when it comes to this combo.

How should these be stored?

The best method for storing these is to use a freezer-safe bag or container. This prevents the chocolate from melting. I would recommend freezing them for at least a month, and probably longer.

Tips:

  • The banana you pick should be ripe, but not mushy. When the fruit isn’t ripe enough, it won’t taste good. To ripen it too much will make it hard to work with and make it mushy.
  • Although coconut oil is not a necessity, it helps melt, work with, and set the chocolate more easily. Do not use refined coconut oil to avoid tasting like coconut. 
  • You can remelt the chocolate in the microwave for a few seconds if it becomes too hard to coat the sandwiches.
  • I usually use dark chocolate, but semi-sweet or white chocolate would also be suitable.
  • Alternatively, you can use almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter in place of peanut butter with chocolate and bananas.
  • People have successfully tried other fruits, such as strawberries, but I have not tried them myself.
