These bite-size frosty morsels of frozen banana, peanut butter and vegan chocolate make a perfect low-calorie snack or easy dessert. These banana bites store well in the freezer, so make some ahead and keep them on hand for those moments you crave a taste of something sweet.
- 3 large bananas
- ¼ cup natural peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
- ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips
- Step 1 Cut each peeled banana in half lengthwise. Spread each half with peanut butter. Place the banana halves together to make banana “sandwiches.” Cut 8 rounds from each banana “sandwich.” Place the banana bites on a parchment paper or wax paper-lined baking sheet or tray and freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Step 2 Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on High, in 15-second increments, until melted (1 to 1 1/2 minutes total). Dip half of each frozen banana bite in the chocolate. Let stand until the chocolate is set. If not serving immediately, return to the freezer.
To make ahead: Store in the freezer in a covered container for up to 1 month. Eat directly from the freezer.
