No bake Peanut butter banana dark chocolate bites

The no bake peanut butter banana dark chocolate bites are to die for. I have made this several occasions and it is always a hit. These are gluten free and vegan.


As promised, here is the other sweet treat that saved us while on vacation. No bake Peanut butter banana dark chocolate bites.

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 no bake Peanut butter banana dark chocolate bites

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

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

3 medium bananas, ripe and sliced
1/2 cup organic creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, vegan if need be

 

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.

  1. Looks great! I’ll be making this sometime soon. I have a question about the nutrition facts – its for 25 grams, is that like 1 or 2 pieces out of 40?

  2. looks so yummy, i love easy desserts, this could also be transformed into granola. :)

  3. Unknown, it is for one piece which = 25 gr :-). For every Extra bite you have you have to multiple the nutrition facts!

  4. I love how cheery the pictures are. :) They look super yummy! I haven’t had something like this in ages but I might make them in July when it’s too hot to bake.

  5. These look awesome and I know my boys would love them too!

  6. These things are so dangerous! I make something very similar and I seriously make a double batch and they’re gone in days!

  7. Omigod THANKS MIRYAM! Ever since the chocolate and prune energy bars I have been waiting for more quickie recipes!

    I can cook healthy really easily when I have time to cook, but the rest of the time…you know how it goes. On the run, and you eat what you can sometimes.

  9. LOVE THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. In the ingredients you refer to brown rice cereal, what exactly do you mean by that? I ask because I’m in Australia and what you are callin oatmeal we call rolled oats, so I just wanted to check what it was before I started. Thanks

  11. Linda,

    brown rice cereal is like rice Krispies but a version made with brown rice.

    You are right, rolled oats is the same as oatmeal and I actually should change this for less confusion.

    One suggestion I may offer when yo make these is to reduce the honey a bit if you can as I found them a bit sweet :-)

    Thanks for visiting my blog and let me know how the energy bites turn out.

  12. Do you think these could work without the coconut?

    I’m thinking of making them for my son with allergies by swapping out the peanut butter for sunbutter but he also reacts to coconut so I’d have to drop that out as well.

  13. This looks really yummy! Does anyone have a suggestion for something I could use in place of peanut butter? I know that would likely change the purpose of the treat, but I have a metabolic disorder (PKU) that requires my eating a low protein diet. I’ve been looking for a granola-type recipe that I could convert, and this might work if I can find a low protein substitute for the peanut butter. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    • I was going to suggest almond butter but that wouldn’t work either. How about you make a mixture of nutella, like 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup and pitted dates previous pureed? That may work however I think it will be awfully sweet. Apple sauce I don’t think it would work bc it is to liquid like. I am lost for ideas………if I think of anything else I will let you know.

  14. These are soooo good!! added raisins instead of coconut and it tasted great!

  15. These look like an easy and perfect afternoon snack for my kids! Sharing today on my FB page!

  16. YUM! I just pinned these for later. I always like ‘bites’ like these to grab after a workout or for an afternoon snack. Thanks!!

  17. Hi, instead of brown cereal what could I use?.. Thanks…

    • You can leave it out if you like if not you can use any other type of healthy cereal of your choice :-) You could even just add more rolled oats too! Thanks for stopping by.

  18. Not sure if I am doing something wrong, but I can’t get these to roll into balls. They just keep falling apart. I left out the powdered cocoa & cut back on the honey., aside from that I followed the recipe.

    • It could be due to the honey. If you like add some liquid like milk if you don’t want to add the honey. You need some sort of liquid to bring the ingredients together. I hope this helps. Thanks for stopping by.

  19. These are fantastic and quick to make! Made for a great treat after a nice spring walk.

  20. I’m from Britian so am not quite clear what the nutrition grade is, could anyone elaborate? It would be much appreciated, thanks!

  21. Hi!

    I absolutely love this recipe. I’m a girl that loves food with texture, so the oats are a nice touch. I also feature it here: http://destinationfemme.com/junk-food-dupes-the-healthy-version-evc/ :)
