No bake Peanut butter, banana and dark chocolate bites


As promised, here is the other sweet treat that saved us while on vacation.

Still to come, one more favorite though, so stay tuned because you really do not want to miss that one :-). I think that one was my family’s favorite!!

Hardly any prep time here, as you can see, and for sure no especial skills needed to put this together!!

This time around I used a peanut butter that I did not like too much, as it was a bit runny and the bananas wouldn’t stay on top of it that good. The peanut butter that worked the best was the organic one from Trader Joe’s.

Choose a peanut butter that doesn’t have too much oil and for sure one that doesn’t have hydrogenated oils, trans fats!!

I was thinking that you could actually use Nutella or home made caramel instead of peanut butter in between the bananas, wouldn’t that be awesome? Just being a bit more naughty :-)

Well not much to elaborate here so I will leave you with these beauties.

Enjoy!!


Here you can see the first steps of putting the bananas together, rather simple. They don’t have to be perfect. Mine actually looked quite messy :-)

On the left picture you can see the bananas right after taking them out of the freezer. Make sure you work quickly when you coat them with the melted chocolate other wise the bananas will became mushy and they will be harder to coat!
I used a couple of forks to help me coat them. No especial equipment needed :-)

After you are done coating them you can keep them in the fridge or the freezer, which ever you prefer. I like them better when kept in the freezer!!

These are awesome. The kids will love them!!

No bake Peanut butter, banana and dark chocolate bites

Yield: 18 pieces

Ingredients:

3 medium bananas, ripe and sliced
1/2 cup organic creamy peanut butter, give or take
1 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, give or take

 

Directions:

Slice bananas and place on a baking tray. Spoon about 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter on top of each banana slice. Place another banana slice over the peanut butter and sandwich together. Freeze until firm, about 2-3 hours.

On a double boiler, melt dark chocolate chips. Place banana pieces in the melted chocolate, one by one, until covered in chocolate all around (I used a couple of forks for this step). Place the bananas back in the baking tray and let them stand until set.

This will not take long, as the bananas are frozen and this will help set the chocolate rather quickly!

Try to work quickly when coating the banana pieces though otherwise they will become mushy and harder to coat with the chocolate.

Keep banana bites in the freezer or fridge. I prefer them right out of the freezer but it is totally up to you :-) They are good. both ways.

    These look great! I always get the natural peanut butter and it’s so much better than the other stuff.

    Tried these today. The bananas got slimy. I ended up throwing them away. I was so hoping they would have been good.

    Jennifer,

    That is weird. I have made these a few times and so far so good. I do keep mine in the freezer and thow them out for a few minutes before I eat them. I have never had any
    problems.

    Sorry they didn’t turn out good. Maybe next time :-)
    Thanks for visiting my blog!!

    Do you think milk chocolate would work as well?

    • Miryam@eatgood4life — June 17th, 2013 @ 10:24 am

      I think it will but make sure you melted at low temperature bc it has more sugar content and it may burn easily :-) Thanks for stopping by.

    These look really good. I will try them (but with almond butter)… and might try them with carob chips.

    I am truly glad to see a dietician promoting a healthy lifestyle. My husband works with the elderly and disabled and we have been shocked to see what “professional dietician’s” feed these people in facilities and homes. Our vision is to someday run a group home and feed people whole, simple foods and herbs that will sustain and probably improve their quality of life.

    • Miryam@eatgood4life — July 9th, 2013 @ 5:48 am

      You are very right. It is quite shocking the bad quality food patients get served at hospitals and nursing home even though dietitians are on staff. It is quite remarkable what you and your husband have in mind. I hope it can someday take place :-) Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi, these look terrific!! Just wondering whether you have any idea how long they would keep for in the freezer? Looks like I have my weekend project sorted! :) Thanks!

    • Miryam@eatgood4life — December 12th, 2013 @ 7:40 pm

      I think for a while. At least a couple of weeks for sure if not longer :-)
