Peanut Butter and Banana Bites

20121104-162906.jpg

I saw these on Pinterest and was immediately excited for two reasons: 1. I have a sweet tooth but I hate going straight to a candy bag. 2. I love a quick and healthy snack after I run. However, I was quickly disappointed that the original recipe contained yogurt. I knew I could make the concept of this recipe easier and veganier. Why not just put peanut butter in between the banana slices? Can’t it be that simple? Yes, it can.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter

Directions:

1. Peel and cut the banana into 1/4 inch thick slices.

2. Build sandwiches by spreading peanut butter in between two slices until all slices have been used up.

3. Place your bite-sized sandwiches on parchment paper and place into the freezer for 2 hours.

4. Remove them from the parchment paper. Either store them in a bag or eat all of them in one sitting (guilty as charged).

Yields roughly 10 bites

  1. They are so adorable! Shame on me… I just smear the peanut butter all over the banana and chow it down mindlessly. Eating like this would perhaps help control peanut butter consumption! 😛

    • Oh I did plenty of eating before I froze these! Haha, you just have to make enough so that you can taste test and freeze the rest! It’s definitely easier when they are frozen to eat just one at a time since you know the rest are safe and sound in the freezer! Thanks for visiting!
