Cocoa-nutty Banana Bites

023-001

Lately I’ve been feeling PRETTY uninspired when it comes to cooking. Moving has been such a task that my brain and body have just been fried. I’ve been living off of Chicken, Asparagus / Broccoli, and sweet potatoes; Eggs, bananas, and pineapple. Not a lot of variety or fanciness lately.

Luckily, we are now moved in completely! Internet was set up just on Saturday in fact! Now, suddenly the creative juices are flowing. This is one I came up with based on cravings, period. It’s a goodie! I don’t post many treats but this one must be shared. It’s really easy and really good! You can change up the textures of these bites by placing them in the freezer for 15 minutes, for a hardened shell and soft banana, or longer, say 8 hours while you are at work, for a solid delicious bite!

The funny thing about creativity is that once you get started it usually just flows. I’ve suddenly come up with multiple variations on this recipe and some other ideas, too! Thank goodness! So don’t fret, I’ll be back soon with more recipes to share :)

Cocoa-nutty Banana Bites

1 banana
2 tsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. cocoa powder
4 macadamia nuts, crushed

  1. Lay out parchment paper on a plate.
  2. Stir together the coconut oil and cocoa powder. If the coconut oil is too firm, heat it slightly on the stove top.
  3. Slice the banana. Spoon the chocolate concoction over the banana slices evenly. Sprinkle the macadamia nuts on top.
  4. Place in freezer and freeze for 15 minutes for mushy bananas with firm topping, or longer for a firmer banana. If too hard, let thaw.

Daaaaaaa-YUM these things are good! And way way way more healthy for you than any chocolate you buy at the store! No sugar added here folks, only god’s given banana sugar ;) So enjoy! And let me know if you do! I love hearing about people trying my recipes, it’s the best feeling when you enjoy the things I create.
