Your child just got home from school, wants a snack, or in our case woke up from a nap and is hungry. Frozen Chocolate Banana bites coated in some awesome toppings like granola, crunchy coconut or some m&m’s you say? Let’s do this!
I’m going to be totally honest, the last few weeks have been ridiculous! Brayden has gone to preschool, I started a new job, getting into a routine where I can juggle the blog has been tough, but I’m finally getting into the swing of things!
Especially with a quick and easy recipe to help ease back into everything. This only takes like 5 minutes to get going and after about an hour in the freezer they’re ready to rock!
I decided to try and make this SOMEWHAT healthy, by using dark chocolate which also has some added benefits like increasing blood flow to the brain (so that should make them do their homework faster right?!).The mini m&m topped ones are for me. Because I’m a big kid and get what I want!
I topped the chocolate banana bites with some of our favorite toppings as well, especially these crispy coconut strips which are super tasty, if you can find some of these I definitely recommend picking them up, I found some at Costco (which is like Disneyland #2 to Brayden).
What I love about simple and delicious snacks like these are they’re so easy to make, and they freeze super quick, in about an hour you can have nice and frozen chocolate banana bites waiting for your child when they get home from school.
Unless you have a high schooler. You’ll be up all night making enough to satisfy their appetite! You’re better off just handing them the raw ingredients and letting them devour it that way…
