Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Bites

Serves 6+




Peel and cut the bananas into 1 inch thick slices. Lay the banana slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper 1 inch apart. Next place the peanut butter in a microwave safe dish and microwave for about 20 seconds or until the peanut butter is soft enough to drizzle then set aside. Now there are 2 ways you can melt the chocolate. The best way is the double boiler method: Take a medium size pot filled 1/2 way with water and bring to a gentle simmer. Place a stainless steel or large glass mixing bowl on top of the pot (make sure the bowl is larger then the pot and the water does not boil over). Add the chocolate chips to the bowl and continuously stir for a few minutes until the chocolate is completely melted. (NOTE: make sure no water or steam gets into the chocolate or else the chocolate will not melt correctly and you will have to start over with a new batch of chocolate). The 2nd method is to place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 20-30 second intervals. Between each interval stir the chocolate for 30 seconds before microwaving again. Repeat the process until the chocolate is melted. (NOTE: if you try this method, do not rush it, the chocolate can burn very easily in the microwave. Take your time and go slow). Now add a thin layer of peanut butter on top of each banana slice, followed by a drizzle of the melted chocolate. Top each banana with some crushed nuts of your choice and a sprinkle of salt. Place the bites in the freezer or refrigerator for about 1 hour so they set up before serving. Enjoy!
