Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Banana Bites

These banana bites are perfect for when you’re craving a sweet treat that is (sort of) healthy. The recipe couldn’t be easier and you’ll only need three ingredients; all-natural peanut butter, chocolate and bananas.

Each banana bite is sandwiched together with all-natural peanut butter and dipped in dark chocolate. Bananas are a great source of carbohydrates, peanut butter is high in protein and dark chocolate is supposedly one of the best sources of antioxidants (win!). The combination of ingredients is the perfect energy booster.

Keep the banana bites in the freezer for when you need pre or post-workout pick me up, or to curb those after-dinner sugar cravings.

Not a fan of dark chocolate or peanut butter? Swap the dark chocolate for milk or white chocolate, and swap the peanut butter for any other nut butter like almond, cashew or hazelnut.

Peanut butter banana slices
Dipping banana bites into chocolate

Ingredients (makes 12 banana bites)

2 ripe medium bananas
6 teaspoons (50g) natural peanut butter – I always buy Meridian peanut butter
50g dark chocolate

Method

Peel the bananas and slice them into rounds. You should be able to get roughly 12 slices per banana.

Top half of the slices with a small amount of peanut butter. Place the remaining slices on top to make little sandwich bites. Insert a toothpick into each bite and put into the freezer for 30 minutes.

Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave or on the hob. Coat half of each sandwich bite by dipping it into the melted chocolate. Put back in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Either serve and eat straightaway, or store in the freezer for up to 1 month.
