Say hello to chocolate covered banana bites with almond butter. The combination of chocolate, banana, and almond butter is pretty hard to top. If you’re like us and crave a little salty and a little sweet, you’re going to want to make these immediately. And that’s the other perk—they’re beyond easy to make.
2 cups dark chocolate chips (if you prefer a sweeter treat, swap with semi-sweet)
½ cup almond butter
Flaky sea salt, optional
Step 1: Slice bananas into “coins” and lay them out on a parchment paper lined dish or tray. Spread some almond butter onto one of the banana coins and use another piece of banana to create a sandwich. Continue until all of your banana slices are used up. Pop the bananas in the freezer for an hour or so.
Step 2: Melt chocolate in a heat-safe glass bowl. (I melt mine in the
microwave in 15 second increments.) Take the bananas out of the freezer and use a fork to gently dip each into the chocolate, so it covers at least half of the banana sandwich.
Step 3: Once all of the bananas are covered in chocolate and are back on the tray, sprinkle a little flaky sea salt on top of each one. Pop them back in the freezer until hardened, about 30 minutes.
Step 4: Enjoy immediately or store them in the freezer to savor at a later date. Your chocolate banana bites will stay fresh for up to a week (if they last that long).
PS- peanut butter works too!
