Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Thursday Night Football Eats: Choco Banana Bites!

image

The other day a friend told me about these delicious banana bites she saw online, and I knew I had to try them. 

As I’ve mentioned a million times before, I am pretty much addicted to peanut butter.

And bananas.

And who doesn’t like chocolate?

Exactly.

In football, they call that a triple threat.

I think.

It seemed like the perfect little snack to accompany the Sunday Colt’s kickoff.

So, I didn’t have an exact recipe (um, but this stuff is sort of a no brainer), so I had to come up with my own ratios which worked well, thank you very much!

Here’s what you need for about 15 bites
-2 slightly large, ripe bananas (too ripe and they’re too mushy, too green and they’re too tasteless)
-2 TBSP natural peanut butter (about 1 TBSP for each banana… or a Brittny TBSP, which is a little padded wink )
-1 cup dark chocolate chips (I used a vegan friendly kind, but any will do)
-1 TBSP coconut oil (optional)

So here’s what I did:

1. I sliced all the bananas into ½ inch pieces and placed half of them on parchment paper.

2. I then gently “dolloped” a little dab of peanut butter on the tops of those halves,

4. Then they went in the freezer for an hour!

EASY.

Um, how about you have your four year old get that part ready for you so you can watch the game, right? smile

After that, I painted my nails watched some football with Will.

5. I warmed up the coconut oil and chocolate in the microwave so it was nice and melty, and quickly dipped my banana bites into the mixture and put them back in the freezer for about half an hour.

Then? Then we ate them all over the course of the weekend.

Yes. Two people, two bananas. Makes perfect sense duh.

Leftovers (if you have any?) can be stored in the fridge or freezer.

Here are the nutrition facts:

Definitely a yummy treat with no bloated belly or guilt afterward.

Cheers and enjoy the game!
