Frozen Banana Bites

Raise your hand if you like bananas. That’s two hands for me. I love bananas but don’t really eat them often, unless it’s in a green monster or banana muffins
However, sometimes your body just needs the sugar for more energy. Real life: this past weekend we went on a long bike ride (hello, 24 miles) and then went canoeing the following day for about 2 hours. Sugar was very necessary!
These are pretty much foolproof to make. Perfect for summer, especially since I’m sure you don’t want to turn on the oven to bake anything. I know, I’m always whining about the summer weather. The upside is I get to wear cute shorts and go to the beach, which is definitely my happy place.



Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites
inspired by Ashley
makes about 8 bites

2 medium bananas
1/2 C chocolate chips (I used mini, semi-sweet)
Toppings: shredded coconut, sprinkles, etc.
Optional: Vegetable oil to thin out chocolate, if necessary

+  Cut the bananas into bite size pieces, about 2 inches thick. Insert a toothpick in the center and place in freezer on a piece of parchment paper for about 30 minutes.

+  Meanwhile, measure out the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and melt 30 seconds, stirring and adding more time if needed. If the chocolate is too thick, add a drizzle of oil and stir well.

+  Pour toppings into small bowls. Take out the bananas from the freezer and one at a time, roll them in the bowl of melted chocolate. Add the topping(s) very quickly, as the chocolate will harden right away.  Place back on parchment paper. Eat right away or store in the freezer inside a covered container.
