4-Ingredient Banana Bites

With just 4 ingredients, these make a great healthy dessert for the kids or a delicious finger food for any party!

Easy Healthy Banana Bites

Studies show kids eat more when foods are bite-sized and fun looking. Of course, to get kids to eat, we don’t want to offer unhealthy options! If you need sweet and healthy to go together- this snack is for you.┬áBanana 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. It’s safe to say these will surely keep anyone’s attention!

Print Recipe

2 Large Banana
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.

  1. yum!!!!! I like food in bite size pieces, too!

  2. Cute! I love how you styled these! Forget the kids, I eat more when foods are bite-sized and fun looking, so I better make them healthy just for myself, haha.

  3. adorable! i’ll make these for our pool party this weekend….

  4. Great idea. This will be great for our 4th weekend. Thanks!

  5. Looks tasty and so cute! Do they have to be eaten immediately or is there a way to keep the bananas from starting to brown? Would love to take this to a community group gathering this summer but I am afraid they will turn brown before I can get there.

    • It is recommended that they be eaten immediately but they can be stored in the fridge right after you make them. The cooled temperature keeps them from browning too much. We actually ate these several hours after making them and they still looked great (maybe a tiny bit darker in color, but not much!). You can also try them out before your gathering to see they’ll work out for you. :)

  6. What a great idea and so simple too. I can’t wait to try this with my kids! Thanks for sharing.

  7. nice healthy snack!

  8. What a fun treat! My kids (and I) would just love this!
