choco banana bites

packed with

rich in potassium and heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids this is a great ‘make ahead’ treat for the little ones! be sure to serve straight from the fridge to keep them nice and chilled.

makes 20 bites

  • 2 bananas
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 4 tbsp nut butter (I used almond butter)
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • (+toppings of choice)

make and do

  • - line a small tray with baking paper
  • - cut the bananas into 2cm thick pieces and place on the tray
  • - combine the chia seeds with the nut butter (the seeds help to bind the nut butter to a thicker paste)
  • - add a dollop of the nut butter mixture on each banana piece
  • - put into the fridge for 30 minutes
  • - melt the dark chocolate in a bowl heated over hot water
  • - removed the bananas from the fridge
  • - using a spoon dip the banana bites into the melted chocolate to cover them and return them to the tray
  • - coat all the bites in chocolate and pop in the fridge to set for a further hour
  • - keep chilled in the fridge

with a twist

  • - use whatever nut butter you like and experiment with toppings, I’ve used desiccated coconut here, try crushed nuts, dried fruit for added flavour and texture
