Banana Bites- Scrumptious!

Another quick post.  I have been craving chocolate like there is no tomorrow and have been trying to find a healthier way to satisfy my sweet tooth.  I saw a recipe for chocolate covered bananas the other day and realized that by adding peanut butter and nuts, it could be a healthy bite as well as a protein-rich one.

They are simple and fabulous, here is how I made them:

Ingredients:
2 Bananas cut up to 1 inch chunks (depending on how many you want)
1/2 Bag of Semi-sweet vegan morsels
1 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp Almond Milk (this is optional but helped to thin my chocolate)
Almond butter (a 1/2 teaspoon per banana bite should do it
Crushed pecans

Heat up your chocolate either in a double boiler or on the stove with the butter and almond milk to thin it.  Place your bananas on a tray and add the peanut butter or almond butter on top.  When your chocolate is done, pour over each piece evenly and add your pecans while it’s still all melty.

Put in freezer for a couple of hours and enjoy- totally melt in your mouth fun!  And you don’t have to feel totally guilty feeding them to your kids either!
