I always crave something sweet after a savory meal, but sometimes I just want a little bite. Juuuuust enough to satisfy that craving – you know what I mean?! I guess that’s why I’ve always loved cute little mini desserts so much. I rarely make a full, multi-serving recipe for dessert. Instead, I’m always throwing together a mug cake or some variation of banana ice cream.
What I’ve been making lately is PERFECT – They’re the cuuuuuutest little Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Bites!
The recipe for these makes a lot, but they’re bite-sized! You can keep them in your freezer, and they’ll be ready any time a craving strikes.
The best part is that they seriously taste like ICE CREAM.
I don’t like chocolate so I leave that part off of mine, but I can confirm from my family trying these that they taste like peanut butter cup ice cream 😉
These little babies are totally dairy-free AND vegan too! YAYYY wanna see how you make ’em?!
Ready To Make Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Bites?!
3 ripe bananas
⅓ cup peanut butter
½ cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips
2 teaspoons coconut oil
Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Then set aside.
Peel and slice the bananas into ¼ inch thick rounds (40-60 slices). Set the banana slices on the baking sheets. Place ½ teaspoon of peanut butter on top of half of the banana slice, then place the remaining banana slice on top. Place in the freezer for about 1 hour, or until the banana is frozen solid.
Add the chocolate and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, stir and microwave in additional 30 second increments, stirring after each interval until chocolate is completely melted.
Dip the frozen banana bite into the melted chocolate so that half of the bite is coated, scraping the bottom side of the banana bite on the edge of the bowl. Place the chocolate covered bite back on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining banana bites.
Place the baking sheets back into the freezer to harden for about 15 minutes.
1. Makes around 20 – 30 bites
2. Use any nut butter you like!
3. If you’re not a fan of chocolate like me, just leave that part out!
