This is barely a recipe. But, in lieu of something more complicated at the moment I wanted to share with you a “good idea” that I found on Pinterest before summer completely passes us by.
I’m not the biggest fan of chocolate covered bananas. If you offered me one, there would be a 50/50 chance that I’d accept. However, I saw several items on Pinterest that added Peanut Butter to the equation, and for me that made all the difference.
Just take a banana, slice it into chunks about 1″ thick, spread a dollop of peanut butter on top, dip in melted chocolate with a toothpick or fork, place on a baking sheet or plate lined with waxed paper, and freeze completely (a few hours). Store in airtight containers or Ziploc bags and pop one in your mouth whenever you’re hungry.
For those unaccustomed to melting chocolate, the most basic approach is to take about 1/2 cup chocoate chips and a few tablespoons of milk and gradually heat in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or so, until smooth.
2 pieces are 115 calories, so you don’t have to feel too bad.
Note: if you prefer an almond butter or anything “fancy,” go for it!
