Peanut Butter Banana "Ice Cream" Sandwich Bites



I love ice cream! I don't eat the traditional dairy ice cream anymore, but I do still crave that frozen creamy dessert. These are great for satisfying that ice cream craving without actually eating any ice cream. These are also kid approved and perfect bite size snacks, although it is hard to just eat one!

There are many versions of this recipe out there. Two of my favorites that inspired this recipe are these Frozen Banana Truffles from The Detoxinista and these Chocolate covered frozen banana and peanut butter bites from Marie at Not Enough Cinnamon.

Here is my version:

Ingredients
2 Bananas

unsalted peanut butter
pinch of sea salt

1 3.5 ounce bar of organic dark chocolate (I used Trader Joes)
1 teaspoon coconut oil

Directions
Slice bananas into rounds and lay half of them on a wax covered baking sheet.



Spoon a small amount of peanut butter on top of each banana slice and top with the remaining slices.



Place in freezer for about 20 minutes to firm up. While the bananas are firming up, melt your chocolate chips and coconut oil over a double boiler or place in a glass bowl and place bowl on top of a pot of boiling water.

Dip each banana sandwich into the chocolate until covered.

  



Place back on waxed paper and place into freezer for about an hour.



These can be made ahead of time and put in the freezer overnight.
