Studies show kids eat more when foods are bite-sized or fun to eat. Of course, to get kids to eat, we don’t want to offer foods we know are not as healthy as what they should be eating. If you need sweet and healthy to go together – this snack is for you. Banana and peanut butter make these a healthier choice with protein and vitamins but the healthy melted chocolate on top creates the sweetness of a traditional candy. These candy bites are very easy to make and so easy, kids can make them! Our goals of teaching and creating heathy habits with our kids is easier with delicious sugar-free snacks like these. Nobody will resist the soft bite of banana, creamy peanut butter and smooth melted chocolate! They are delicious enough to be called dessert and pretty enough to serve at any party. Enjoy!
4-Ingredient Banana Bites (gluten-free & vegan)
2 Large Bananas
1/3 cup Sugar Free, Vegan Chocolate
1/3 cup Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
Crushed Raw Nuts, optional
Slice up your bananas into 1/2 inch thick pieces. Place about 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter on top of each slice. Place in the freezer. While the banana bites are chilling, carefully melt the chocolate. Remove the bananas from the freezer and gently pour a little chocolate over each piece, swirling the chocolate around the edges to form a nice coating. Sprinkle with finely crushed walnuts, pecans or peanuts and serve.
