A great combination of sweet and salty, these tasty banana bites will be a hit with Arrested Development fans.
2 cups chocolate chips (semi sweet)
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2 large pinches of sea salt + extra for sprinkling
4 bananas that aren't over-ripe
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1 pinch granulated sugar for sprinkling
Before you start line 2 large plates with aluminum foil and clear some room in your freezer. It's always good to do these things before your hands are covered in chocolate.
Place the 2 cups of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate for 30 seconds. Then add the coconut oil and the peanut butter and microwave for 30 more seconds. Stir with a spoon and make sure that everything is melted and creamy. If you have a few stubborn chips, wait a few seconds and see if the residual heat melts them. If not, give the mixture another 5-10 seconds in the microwave. Once creamy and well combined, add the salt and stir once more.
Chocolate Covered Banana Bites
Slice all of the bananas into 3/4 inch rounds and place in a large bowl, discard... or eat... all of the tips of the bananas, they don't make for a nice presentation.
Place the chocolate mixture over the bananas and gently stir until the bananas are coated. Be careful not to smoosh the bananas! If your bowl isn't big enough do this step in two rounds. Use half of the chocolate and half of the bananas first, and then do it again.
Once the bananas are coated in the chocolate, gently place them on your two foil-lined plates so they're not touching. Sprinkle with more sea salt, granulated sugar, and the chopped almonds.
Let the bananas freeze for at least 3 hours prior to serving.
