Dark Chocolate Dipped Banana Peanut Butter Bites – Low-Calorie, GF

These dark chocolate dipped banana peanut butter bites are a perfect snack to keep on hand in your freezer. Only 150 calories for 2 banana bites.

 

I love having snacks on hand that are not only healthy, but easy to make too. Like these easy banana 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.

 

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.

 

Are bananas healthy?

Bananas are rich in fiber, potassium, antioxidants and several nutrients. One serving of banana contains 110 calories, 30 grams of carbohydrate and 1 gram of protein. Bananas are naturally free of fat, cholesterol, and sodium.

To make these bites, you’ll need two medium sized bananas that are ripe, but not overly ripe. Some brown spotting on the peels is okay. Peel the bananas and slice into 1/2″ thick rounds. Set them aside, and then mix the PBFit with water. Mix it well until it has a peanut butter consistency. Next, spread the peanut butter on one banana round, then top with another to form a sandwich. Repeat until peanut butter and bananas are gone. Once that is done, place the banana bites onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper and freeze until solid, about an hour.

 

Once they’re frozen, melt dark chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl, about 45 seconds. Stir it until it’s smooth. Then, dip half of a frozen banana bite into the warm melted dark chocolate and set back on parchment paper. Repeat until all the bites are covered. Let the bites rest until the chocolate is set. You can enjoy immediately, or store in freezer until ready to eat. 

 

How do I store banana bites?

Place the banana bites into a freezer-safe bag or container. The frozen banana bites can last up to 4 months in the freezer as long as they are stored properly to not get freezer burn.
