Chocolate Covered Bananas

A sweet treat. I find freezing bananas mellows out their flavor and all you taste is creaminess.

Ingredients

  • 5 bananas cut in pieces or in half
  • 2 cups coconut oil at room temperature
  • 4 Tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • Toothpicks, wooden sticks - popsicle or shish kebob

Instructions

  1. Mix the coconut oil, honey and vanilla together. I heated mine in the microwave for 1 minute since the house was cool and the coconut oil was solid.
  2. Blend in the remaining ingredients - sea salt, cinnamon and cocoa powder
  3. Blend until well mixed - I use my immersion blender or hand mixer.

  4. Skewer each banana with a toothpick or wooden stick 

  5. Dip each banana in the chocolate mixture rotating to cover.

  6. Place each dipped banana on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

  7. Freeze for about 5 minutes to harden the chocolate

  8. Continue to dip and freeze bananas to reach the desired thickness of chocolate - I dipped them 4 times.

  9. After the chocolate is the desired consistency, place in the refrigerator or freeze. 

  10. After dipping is complete, pour any extra chocolate into a parchment paper lined dish and refrigerate until firm - this makes delicious chocolate candy!

  11. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Remember, coconut oil liquefies at about 75F so it is important to keep them cool!

Pour any extra chocolate into a parchment paper lined dish and refrigerate until firm - this makes delicious chocolate candy!
