Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Hi all!! Remember me!? It’s been a little while since I last posted. I really want to take a moment to thank you all so much your well wishes and sweet comments following my last post about the bus crash. You people are the best friends a girl could ask for! For those wondering, I’m definitely doing better. My brain is healing {yay for being able to kind of spell agian again!} and I’ve been rehabbing my hip and shoulder. I’ve got quite a bit more work to do there but they are starting to come back!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites

On to the good stuff. I told you guys last time I shared a recipe that the hubs and I been trying to cut back on the sweets and working to get healthy and eating healthier. The hardest thing for me to cut out is sweets… I’ve got a serious sweet tooth {as evident by one of my largest Pinterest boards!} So I’ve been working on ways to satisfy my craving with small “bites” of semi-healthy sweetness! This is one of my all time favorites… Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites!!!

Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 3 bananas
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup Creamy Peanut Butter
Instructions
  1. Line baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a double boiler {if you don’t have one you can bring about 1-inch of water to a low simmer in a small saucepan and place a non-meltable bowl on top of it}, melt chocolate chips until smooth. Add in peanut butter stir until smooth.
  3. Using a fork, dip bananas into the chocolate mixture, tapping the excess chocolate off.
  4. Place dipped bananas on baking sheet. Place full baking sheet in the freezer to allow chocolate to set. Once chocolate is set, move bananas to airtight container. Store in freezer. Enjoy!

I actually made these before the accident and they have been a life-saver! With injuries making me not capable of moving much, let alone exercising, I’ve been needing a low-guilt sweet to nibble on every once in a while!

These are absolutely delicious!! I love that when frozen, the texture of bananas becomes almost creamy like ice cream! So it is like eating a delicious, chocolate peanut butter dipped banana ice cream bite! I actually considered titling this post that but I figured that was a little long.

Something else I love about these is that all I need is 1 or 2 bites and my sweet craving is gone! Plus, eating a chocolate peanut butter banana bite has to be healthier than a scoop of ice cream, right???

Do you have any bite-sized craving busters that you want to share with me?? What are ways you defeat  your sweet tooth!?
