DARK CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BANANA BITES
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites are quick, easy and healthy dessert recipe that can be made ahead of time!
When trying to come up with a healthy dessert recipe to make with my sister, I stumbled across these dark chocolate peanut butter banana bites. They’re the perfect snack to pop after dinner when you need to satisfy a sweet tooth! Plus, with just three ingredients, they’re super easy to make and healthy.
The only hard part about making these delicious bites is transferring the peanut butter between the banana slices. I recommend spraying a teaspoon with cooking spray to drop dots of peanut butter. You can also try putting the peanut butter in the freezer for just a short time so it hardens just enough to handle.
These Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Banana Bites are also a fun recipe to make with kids or friends. Don’t be afraid to make a mess. That’s what paper towels are for.
