GF Frozen Chocolate Banana Treats

Chocolate covered banana almond butter sandwich treats…yes please!

Sometimes you just need a little chocolate…or at least we do! I love finding ways to get our daughter cooking in the kitchen, and this was a really fun, messy and memorable recipe we made last weekend. It’s also a healthy dessert, so you don’t have to feel bad about giving them seconds when they ask (because they will).

Ingredients:

  1. Sliced bananas
  2. GF, dairy free chocolate chips (we like Enjoy Life & Chocolate Dream)
  3. Ground almonds
  4. Organic shredded coconut
  5. Rainbow sprinkles (we like India Tree because they use vegetables to color the sprinkles rather than chemical dyes)
  6. Almond butter (we like Barney Butter)

Directions:

  1. Slice the bananas.
  2. Melt chocolate chips.
  3. Add almond butter layer between two banana slices.
  4. Dip in chocolate or drizzle on top with a spoon.
  5. Sprinkle any of the three toppings on top.
  6. Freeze for 2-3 hours.
  7. Enjoy!

 

Toddler Twist: Remember to keep portion size in mind. Adults might like a half to a whole banana, while toddlers like the smaller 2-bite sizes. Dress up the toothpicks too for some added fun. My daughter loves princesses, so we used toothpicks with tiaras on top.
