peanut butter banana bites with chocolate, coconut & cashews

peanut butter banana bites with chocolate, coconut & cashews


in order for easter to be more meaningful- even though i am not catholic i decided to partake in lent. so i have made the decision to give up dessert- yes you read right, no dessert until april 24; at least i have something to look forward to.

peanut butter banana bites with chocolate, coconut & cashews


needless to say i made these banana bites (inspired by (never)homemaker ) just a few days before giving up my beloved sweets. these are a bit healthier than your normal treat which is a bonus- i love the combination of sweet and salty from the cashews and coconut. this is the second time i have created these little morsels of goodness, this time i threw in honey & peanut butter. yes i am one of those vegans who still enjoy honey- honey which is locally harvested and the bees are cared for by wonderful farmers. if you wish to exclude the honey, go crazy with some agave nectar- just as good.

this recipe is so quick and easy- whats not to love about chocolate, peanut butter & banana?
peanut butter banana bites with chocolate, coconut & cashews

slice your bananas into bite size rounds- amazingly frozen banana tastes like ice cream, come on close your eyes; i dare you- see i told you just like ice cream.

peanut butter banana bites with chocolate, coconut & cashews

you will need:

- 2 medium/large bananas (not overly ripe)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter - whatever you fancy
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut
- 2 tablespoons salted cashews- crushed leaving some larger pieces
- 1 cup chocolate

assembly:

- prep a cookie sheet with parchment paper
- slice your banana into bite sized rounds
- over medium heat combine peanut butter and honey until smooth & loose- kinda like a street corner girl
- remove from heat and carefully coat the banana rounds in the peanut butter/honey mixture. this needs to be done quickly as the peanut butter looses its looseness quickly
- place peanut butter coated banana rounds on the cookie sheet, set aside
- in the same pan, over low/medium heat melt chocolate and cinnamon until melty
- remove from heat-dunk each banana round into chocolate ensuring you are covering all sides. i found a spoon to be a mighty helpful assistant during the peanut butter and chocolate coating stage
- once coated with chocolate place back on cookie sheet
- i opted to not cover all my banana rounds with chocolate- i kept some with just their peanut butter jackets on
- once all your rounds are covered, sprinkle with cashews pressing down a bit if chocolate has begun to set & coconut. with the peanut butter rounds sans chocolate, i rolled these guys in the coconut to coat.
- place in the freezer for a minimum of 15 minutes or until chocolate is hardened.
- once hardened the bites can be stored in an airtight container stored in the freezer

  1. I made these yesterday to bring to a friends house! They loved it! I had a bit of a rough time though since the peanut butter was so sticky and a bit difficult to handle.

  15. The term armored car was very familiar since world war1. Armoring means that the entire car is reinforced with bulletproof materials. So that the vehicle can offer complete protection to the passenger from all kinds of gun attacks and accidents. British army’s Mark-I was the world's first tank and armored vehicle used for defense and retaliation. As time goes by the demand for armored vehicles is highly increased. Now, various types of bulletproof cars are being used for personal security, business, and military purposes. The armored SUVs and luxury cars for the civilians. Pickup and cash in transit for safe transportation on the road. Armoured Personnel Carriers and troop carriers for police and military patrolling. The armored ambulances, and heavy-duty trucks for special purposes. Normally, the armoring is done according to the level of protection that the customer needs. While most companies reinforce existing vehicles, armoring companies like harrow security vehicles design and manufacture customized APCs (Armored Personnel Carrier) and Troop Carriers for military and government.
