Frozen Banana Bites

This is simply the easiest, tastiest frozen treat ever.

I generally keep a bag (or two) of frozen banana chunks in the freezer to be used in our favorite peanut butter and banana smoothies. So I started with frozen banana chunks, although fresh would work as well.

Here's what you need:

2 bananas, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 5-6 pieces per banana)
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Here's what you do:

Line a tray or plate with parchment paper. 

Place chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Place in microwave for about 1 minute. Stir to combine, continuing until smooth.

One at a time, dip banana pieces in the melted chocolate mixture, then place on prepared plate. Place in the freezer until chocolate hardens.

I started with frozen banana chunks, so my banana bites were ready to eat immediately (a big plus!). If you begin with fresh bananas, you will want to set these in the freezer until the chocolate hardens and the banana is frozen.

Super simple. Super yummy.
