WHAT DO I LIKE ABOUT FROZEN BANANA TREATS?

  • This is one of those recipes that children love to make and love to eat!

I'm a believer that children can and should be involved in food preparation. Kids should learn how to cook! Read a little bit more about that here, as to why I think that kids should learn to cook. There are many experts around the world who prioritize the cooking skill as a first skill to teach children.

  • These frozen bites are great for a snack, dessert or really any time when you get those "snicker bar cravings"!

  • Keep banana bites in the freezer for up to 3 months!

  • Frozen banana bites are following a vegan (plant-based) clean eating diet!

  • Easy to make, no special equipment needed!

  • Very inexpensive recipe!

  • And last but not least everyone loves it!

TIPS FOR MAKING FROZEN BANANA BITES:

  1. Use ripe bananas, the riper, the sweeter, but not too ripe meaning don't use when the peel is almost brown.

  2. Freeze banana bites completely before the next step (covering in chocolate)!

  3. Use good quality chocolate! In the video we used a combination of milk, white and some extra dark chocolate.

  4. Nuts, you can use any kind, but we found the best here are peanuts. Salted and roasted peanuts!

ON NUTS FOR 3 INGREDIENTS FROZEN BANANA BITES:

I think any nuts are great here, but peanuts are the best because these tasty frozen banana bites remind me of a snicker bar.

In my blog, I have mentioned many times that I like to prep all my nuts that we consume ahead of time, which means soaking them and then roasting.


Why go through this process?

The soaking process not only neutralizes phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors but will also increase the vitamin content, particularly B vitamins. Tannins, complex sugars, and other difficult-to-digest substances are partially broken down into simpler components that are more readily available for absorption.

I personally get stomach pain if I eat store-bought roasted nuts.


Let's do it...


Prep time: 5 minutes

Making time: 10 minutes

Waiting time: 3-4 hours

Total time: 3-4 hours & 15 minutes

Author: Inna of innichkachef.com

Servings: 20-24 bites


Ingredients

4 large bananas

1 cup chocolate chunks (we used a combination of white, milk & some dark chocolate)

3/4 cup of roasted salted peanuts


Directions

  • Peel, then cut each banana in 4-5 pieces and insert a toothpick into each. Place on a tray, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer until frozen, about 3 hours. Covering is not necessary if you leave them for just 3 hours, but this step can be done a day or two ahead of time. To prevent freezer burn, wrapping them in plastic wrap is a must.

  • Crush the nuts in a food processor or place in a zip lock bag and give them a few whacks with a rolling pin.

  • Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over slightly simmering water, over the lowest possible heat, stirring frequently. Make sure the water is not touching the bottom of the top pan. Or use a microwave like we did in the video. Make sure your microwave is on the 50 present power setting. Stir chocolate every 30 seconds or until it is a nice and glossy consistency.

  • Dip each frozen banana into the chocolate, turning it to coat, and immediately roll into the peanuts. Place on a tray covered in waxed paper. Serve immediately!

NOTE:

If you do not eat right away, wrap individually in plastic wrap or waxed paper and freeze for up to 3 months.
