How to Make Healthy and High Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites
Start by prepping your bananas – peel them and slice them into rounds about 1/4 inch thick.
Line two platters/plates or baking sheets with parchment paper. Spread the peanut butter on a banana slice and top with another. It’s like you’re making little banana sandwiches. Repeat until all of the banana slices are used and you have about 30 bites. Place bites on the prepared platter(s) and put in the freezer so they harden a bit.
Once your peanut butter banana bites have hardened, make your melted chocolate. Add the dark chocolate chips, Protein Milkshake, and coconut oil to a small bowl. Microwave for one minute, stir and microwave for another 30 seconds. Continue stirring and microwaving until all of the chocolate is melted – this shouldn’t take more than two minutes total.
Take your frozen banana bites and dip them into the melted chocolate so half of each bite is coated, place them bake on the baking sheet. Continue until all bites have been dipped and place them back in the freezer so they can harden again (should only take about 15 minutes this time). Now it's time to dig in.
It is recommended to use two platters or baking sheets so that you’re only taking half of the frozen banana bites out of the freezer at a time. If you take all 30 out at the same time, some of the bites will start to thaw and get slippery before you get a chance to dip them in the chocolate.
