Frozen Banana Bites with Nut Butter and Chocolate
As a kid, going to DisneyWorld, chocolate covered frozen bananas with nuts was a traditional snack we siblings shared. (I always tried to get more chocolate in my bites) Here's a fun update to those great flavors.
This recipe is originally from
Shayna's Kitchen, and I love it so much I wanted to share it.
Prep Time: 20 min. + freezing Serves: many as y'all want
3 bananas halved lengthwise (or as many as you want, go nuts! Orange you glad I didn't say bananas?)
3 tbsp nut butter of choice (almond, sunflower, peanut, hazelnut) 1/4 cup chopped nuts (I used hazelnuts and candied pecans)
1 cup chocolate chips melted (optional: use Trader Joe's chocolate almond spread, that I like better than Nutella. It just tastes cleaner, healthier and less processed to me.)
halve bananas and spread them on a parchment lined baking sheet
spread your nut butter on the cut sides with a butter knife or offset spatula
in a glass bowl, microwave your chocolate in 30 second intervals to melt, stirring in between until you can stir until smooth.
sprinkle 2/3 of your nuts onto the nut butter and banana
drizzle chocolate over (and have fun with it!)
top with remaining nuts
freeze for about an hour before snacking. Enjoy!
