  • Creamy nut butter , use your favorite - almond butter, cashew butter, peanut butter OR sunflower seed butter or tahini for a nut-free version

Chocolate Coating

  • 2/3 cup dairy-free chopped chocolate or dairy-free chocolate chips – we like to Hu's Kitchen or Lily's Sweets

  1. PREPARE BAKING SHEET: Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper.
  2. CUT BANANAS: Peel bananas and slice into 1/4 inch thick coins.
  3. FILL BANANA SLICES WITH NUT BUTTER: Use a small knife, to spread 1/2-2/3 tsp. of various fillings on half of the banana slices.
  4. SANDWICH: Place the other banana slices on top of each to make a sandwich.
  5. FREEZE BANANAS: Place the assembled banana sandwiches on the lined baking sheet and freeze for at least 2 hours or until solid.

  6. MAKE THE CHOCOLATE COATING: Once bananas are frozen, prepare the chocolate coating. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in a medium bowl and microwave on medium-high in 30 second increments, stirring well in between or over a double boiler over the stove.
  7. DIP BANANA INTO CHOCOLATE: Remove baking sheet from freezer, and working quickly, hold each banana sandwich and dip half of it in the bowl of melted chocolate.
  8. SPRINKLE WITH TOPPINGS: Place back on baking sheet and sprinkle with various toppings.
  9. FREEZE again for 2 hours or until frozen solid again and enjoy. Store in freezer in an airtight container.
