Two things inspired this incredibly easy and yummy recipe. The first inspiration was my love of Reese’s Peanut Buttercups during my non-vegan days (and let’s face it, if they were vegan I would totally still chow down on a Reese’s anytime). The second inspiration was from my days as a kid when I would go to my grandparent’s house and my grandma would freeze bananas and we would dip them in that magic shell chocolate that would harden in seconds. I loved that ice cream texture from the frozen banana.
I had a couple of leftover bananas that looked less than appetizing, as you can see below. I was afraid they would spoil, so I wanted to quickly turn them into a treat.
These frozen banana bites were devoured within the evening by Caegan mainly (who swears he isn’t a fan of the chocolate and peanut butter combo. Hmm). Before getting dunked in chocolate, the peanut butter and banana combo were also enjoyed by my 4-legged children as well.
These refreshing and sweet bites require 3 ingredients: bananas, peanut butter, and vegan chocolate. I’ve been searching for a vegan chocolate, and as much as I can research, this Baker’s chocolate is vegan, but if someone knows otherwise, please let me know!
Simply slice your bananas, not too thin.
Take a small amount of peanut butter (maybe 1/2 tsp?) and sandwich it between two banana slices.
Skewer your peanut butter and banana sandwiches and freeze.
Clearly someone is still eyeing peanut butter and banana sandwiches in the background.
After your bananas are frozen, melt the chocolate and dip your frozen banana sandwiches in the melted chocolate. I tried submerging them completely, but then found out quickly I didn’t have enough chocolate, so I decided to half submerge them. Return the bananas to the freezer and enjoy!
