These banana bites are really popular with my kids but actually also with our friends. Grown up friends, that is. A while ago, we had one of Søren’s friends over for dinner and one of the first things he asked me was “if I made the banana-bites for dessert”. I did, fortunately. I almost always have some in the freezer.
I love when I can serve a sweet treat for the kids that’s based mainly on natural ingredients. And to see that they’re just as happy as if I’d served them a regular icecream makes me really happy. Did I mention, I love them too? They’re better than regular icecream, in my opinion.
6-8 BANANA BITES
- 1 large banana
- 2-3 tablespoons of peanutbutter, creamy
- 100 g dark chocolate
- 1 small handful of salty peanuts, chopped
- wooden popsicle sticks or paper straws cut in halves
2. Insert popsicle sticks into banana and place them on a plate covered with baking paper. Put them in the freeser.
3. When the bananas are frozen, take them out and spread peanutbutter on each bite. Put them back in the freezer.
4. Melt chocolate over a double boiler and dip the banana-peanutbutter-bites in the chocolate and sprinkle a little bit of chopped peanuts on. Repeat until you’re done. Put them back in the freezer and serve them as a healthified dessert.
Note: banana may not be low carb or low glycemic but they’re still natural food and when they replace a store bought popsicle with so many strange ingredients, you win double here, if you ask me!
