I am always on the lookout for fun treats that are more on the healthy side than packaged treats. I don’t want chemicals and nutrition in each bite is important to me. I’ve been seeing “magic” chocolate shell all over Pinterest and have been excited to give it a try. I love the ingredients in these frozen peanut butter banana bite recipe and always have coconut oil on hand so this recipe was a no-brainer. You just can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter in my house! Ok…………enough jibber jabber. Let’s get to this recipe from Thrive Market!
Chocolate-covered frozen bananas are a summertime classic, but just because it’s back to school, doesn’t mean it’s time to say goodbye. Assemble these little mini pops for a bite-sized after-school treat. Your little kiddos can even help; making the two-ingredient “magic” chocolate shell is like the best kind of science experiment—incredible and edible.

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Bites
Yield: 15 to 20 bites
- 3 bananas
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 6 ounces chocolate
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- Roasted peanuts, chopped
- Peel and slice bananas into ½-inch rounds.
- Dollop 1 scant teaspoon peanut butter onto half of the rounds.
- Top each peanut butter–topped round with remaining banana slices, then place 1 popsicle stick through each stack, pressing down very gently to avoid peanut butter spilling out the sides.
- Place on a tray and freeze at least 2 hours.
- Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a heatproof bowl placed over a pot of simmering water, stirring occasionally.
- Let cool slightly, then dip banana sandwiches in melted chocolate.
- Place back on tray and sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
- The chocolate should harden immediately. If necessary, place in freezer to set.
