Dark Chocolate Dipped Banana Peanut Butter Bites

 

I love having snacks on hand that are not only healthy, but easy to make too. Like these easy dark chocolate dipped banana peanut butter bites. Snacks are one of those things that I find myself buying more than making, especially with so many easy snack options available to buy. Lately, I have been focusing more time on making snacks.

 

I used two medium sized bananas that are ripe, but not overly ripe. Some brown spotting on the peels is okay. Then peanut butter and dark chocolate. I used dark chocolate chips because they are easy to melt in a bowl in the microwave. I know sometimes people will add coconut oil to make the chocolate thinner, but I do not. Mostly because it adds a lot of calories (130 calories for just 1 TBSP), but also because it isn’t needed. I find if I’m dipping my frozen banana bites as soon as I take the warm chocolate out of the microwave that it works great.

One way to reduce the calories in this snack is to use PBFit peanut butter powder, rather than peanut butter from a jar. The peanut butter powder has only 70 calories in 2 TBSP, and is made into peanut butter by adding water. The peanut butter flavor is amazing. I also use PbFit in my cookie recipe and my shake recipe you can find here on my blog.
