If you’re a fan of my no bake healthy truffles, then you will love this recipe! These delicious frozen bites are packed with goodness and taste so good you’ll never believe that they’re healthy.
These frozen bites make a delicious snack, dessert or pre-workout treat and are a great source of potassium and fibre (from the bananas), healthy fats and protein (from the nut butter) and flavanoids/antioxidants (from the dark chocolate).
You can customise these bites with your chosen nut butter (I used cashew butter) and can even add desiccated coconut for added fibre and healthy fats (make sure to buy unsweetened!).
✔️ 1 large ripe banana (or 2 small)
✔️ Approx 5 tsp of your favourite nut butter (I used peanut!)
✔️ 100g of dark (or milk) chocolate
✔️ Optional – 3-4 tbsp of desiccated coconut
1️⃣ Slice up your banana (a large banana will give at least 20 chunks) & lay half of the banana chunks on baking/greaseproof paper on a flat surface e.g. a baking tray/ plate.
2️⃣ Spoon approx ¼-½ a tsp of your nut butter on top of the banana slices laying on the paper.
3️⃣ Top with the remaining banana slices to make 10 x little ‘banana & nut butter sandwiches’.
4️⃣ Place in the freezer for at least an hour (I covered the banana chunks lightly with greaseproof paper just to protect them from any falling ice!).
5️⃣ Melt your chocolate in the microwave for around 1-1.5 minutes, stirring every 15 seconds to avoid burning (use 1 piece of chocolate per banana chunk).
6️⃣ Dip your banana pieces into the chocolate & roll (do this quickly so that the banana doesn’t start to melt) using a spoon to move around the banana slices in the melted chocolate. Rolling in coconut too is optional! 🥥
7️⃣ Place the chocolate covered banana chunks back on the grease proof paper and freeze for 2-3 hours before serving or keep in the freezer until a chocolate craving kicks in!
Enjoy, and let me know if you remake them! ❤️
