Two ways to make the best banana bites – these come together in minutes and are eaten up even faster! These make the perfect fun breakfast, great afternoon snack, or delicious dessert.

Banana Bites

These banana bites are so easy and fun to make! These have become my kid’s go-to after school snack; they beg to eat them! I’m not complaining about that because they are simple to make, healthier than a bag of chips (and plenty of other snacks), and it’s fun to involve them in the process of making these banana bites.

These two recipes are extremely customizable, below I’ve got a few suggestions. 

Variation Ideas

  • Use a different nut butter: almond butter, cashew butter, a hazelnut butter (like Nutella), etc. These amazing nut butters make for some really fun flavors (not sponsored).
  • For the banana “sushi”: add granola, miniature chocolate chips, or leave it plain.

Ingredients

Banana Chocolate Bites

  • 3 ripe, but firm bananas
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil

Banana "Sushi"

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 whole wheat flour tortillas (8 inch)
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup granola or miniature chocolate chips
  • 2 ripe, but firm bananas

Instructions

Banana Chocolate Bites

  • Cut banana into slices about 1/4th inch thick. Place slices on a parchment paper lined sheet pan. Place about 1/4 teaspoon of peanut butter on the center of half of the slices of bananas. Add the other half of the banana and press down gently to form a banana "sandwich." Place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
  • Prepare the chocolate: add the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst for 10 seconds, until chocolate is smooth and melted.
  • Dip banana bites in the melted chocolate and return to the parchment paper lined sheet pan. Repeat until all banana bites are dipped in chocolate.
  • Place the chocolate covered bites back in the freezer until set. Once they are set, enjoy! We like them cold, but not frozen through!

Banana "Sushi"

  • Spread peanut butter evenly over each tortilla. Drizzle honey on top of peanut butter; sprinkle with granola or chocolate chips.
  • Place a banana in center of each tortilla. Roll up burrito-style tightly. Cut into one inch pieces.

  1. Mhmmm I love hoe simple and delicious this recipe is! I always get struck by a HUGE chocolate craving as well, but usually reach for that jar of nutella and have one too many spoonfuls ;). I’ll keep this recipe in mind for the next wave of chocolate-induced craving!
