I’m always on the quest to get my kids to make better choices when it comes to snacking. Being honest, I could make better choices as well.
When they ask for a snack, I tend to say, “Get a piece of fruit.
Well, I made these and now they’re all about getting a “piece of fruit!”
Frozen Banana Bites
2 large bananas
1/3 cup carob (or chocolate) chips
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
unsweetened coconut flakes
Set out a large plate or bowl with a piece of parchment or wax paper on it. Cut up the bananas into good-sized chunks. Each banana should give you around 5 to 6 pieces. Heat the peanut butter and carob chips in the microwave on HIGH for about a minute; stir until smooth.
Dip the banana pieces in the chocolate-peanut butter mixture. Lay them out, leaving some space between them on the parchment/wax paper. Then, sprinkle the unsweetened coconut flakes on top. Transfer to the freezer and freeze overnight.
