Ingredients

  • 3 large bananas

  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter (chunky or smooth)

  • ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips

Directions

  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.

  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.

Tips

To make ahead: Store in the freezer in a covered container for up to 1 month. Eat directly from the freezer.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
