Ingredients

  • 4 Bananas
  • 3/4 cup cup creamy peanut butter sugar free
  • 1 ½ cups dark chocolate chips sugar free
  • Optional: Melted peanut butter for drizzling about 2 TBS

Instructions

  1. Line a large baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
  2. Cut the bananas in half lengthwise.
  3. Push a lollipop stick or popsicle stick 1 ½ inches into the flat side of each banana.
  4. Carefully spread 1 TBS of creamy peanut butter lengthwise on each banana and evenly space them on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Place the baking sheet into the freezer for at least 3 hours (and up to one day), or until bananas and peanut butter are completely frozen.
  6. Once bananas are frozen, melt together 1 ½ cups of dark chocolate chips and ¼ cup peanut butter in the microwave or over a double boiler. Stir until smooth and homogenous.
  7. Pour melted chocolate/peanut butter mixture into a tall, narrow glass.
  8. Remove bananas from the freezer and, working quickly, carefully dip each banana in the chocolate/peanut butter mixture then set it back on the cold, wax-paper lined baking sheet. (If the coating is too thick, use a spatula to carefully scrape some of the chocolate/peanut butter mixture back into the glass before it freezes to the banana).
  9. Repeat until all the bananas are covered in chocolate. You may need to use a spatula to scrape the chocolate from the glass and spread it onto the last banana so it can get completely covered.
  10. Place the baking sheet back into the freezer for at least two hours for the bananas to set.
  11. Optional: Once the chocolate has hardened in the freezer you can drizzle melted peanut butter over the bananas using a fork. Then place them back in the freezer to harden!
  12. Serve frozen!
