Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites (with photos)
« on: February 06, 2017, 10:34:08 am »
Hello dear friends,

Today I'd like to share the recipe for some yummy healthy chocolatey bites.
They are super easy to make and very practical to prepare in advance!
I believe they may become one of your go to recipes!

A few tips:

It is very important to have enough ripe bananas to have the right sweetness and flavor. I can't emphasize this enough.
The bananas with some dark spots are usually ideal for this. They shouldn't be neither green nor overripe.

I always prepare my own sugar-free oil-free salt-free chemical-free peanut butter. I use toasted or lightly toasted peanuts. In my recent peanut butter I used very lightly, almost barely toasted peanuts. That's why my butter has a lighter color than usual.

With the given ingredients and having my bananas sliced about 0.7 cm thick, I've got 22 Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites.

Ingredients:
2 enough ripe bananas (I weighed mine to be precise. They came 350 g unpeeled, 225 g peeled in total)
Peanut Butter
150 g dark chocolate (70% cacao)


Preparation:

    Slice bananas. (Mine were around 0.7 cm thick)

    Spread some peanut butter on one slice, cover it with another.

    Place peanut buttered banana slices on a baking paper.

    Put them in freezer for about 1 hour.

    Break chocolate in pieces and put in TM Bowl. Chop for 10 second on Speed 8.

    Clean the sides of TM Bowl with spatula and let chocolate melt for 3 - 4 minutes at 50ļC on Speed 2.

    Transfer melted chocolate into a small cup.

    Remove bites from freezer and dip them in chocolate with help of two toothpicks. Place chocolate dipped bites on baking paper. You should work quickly so they wouldn't thaw. (You may prefer to get some, lets say 5 bites out of freezer, dip in chocolate, put back in freezer and continue with the remaining bites)

    If you are planning to serve them in a house party it may be a nice idea to use some mini cupcake liners.

    Store them in freezer.

    Before you serve let them stay at room temperature for a few minutes.


Enjoy...

I saw the words chocolate, peanut butter and banana and knew the recipe would be delicious. Farfallina these sound so very, very nice.

This is something very different farfallina, how ingenious.  I wonder how many calories are in each bite?

Thank you girls
I hope you enjoy them  ;)  :-*

Judy, according to my calculations in nutritiondata web site, each bite is around 80 - 90 calories.
Let me add that one bite is quite satisfying. Well... ok... let's make it two!  ;D

True for me too. I think I could make one of these into 3 bites too. 😃😃😃
