If you have a sweet tooth and you can’t say no to chocolate and cookies, then you’re going to adore these chocolate-covered peanut butter banana sandwiches.
You just need bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate to make this tasty healthy dessert. These peanut butter banana sandwiches dipped in chocolate are not difficult to make at all and, trust me, no one can say no to them.
I’ve been making these little cutties for years and all of my friends love them. I mean, who wouldn’t?
Before I share the recipe with you, let me tell you first why I adore these frozen chocolate-covered peanut butter banana sandwiches.
Well, first of all, they’re truly delicious. Then, they are easy to make – you just need 3 ingredients to make them. Next, they’re perfect to eat when it gets hot outside as they are refreshing. And most importantly, they are healthy.
Peanut butter has many health benefits. It’s rich in antioxidants, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals, like vitamin B3 and vitamin B6, magnesium, iron, and zinc. It’s also low in carbohydrates and a good source of protein.
In addition to being delicious, bananas are very healthy too. They are a great source of vitamin B6, fiber, potassium, magnesium, and different antioxidants. They’re also naturally low in sodium and there’s almost no fat in them.
Due to being an excellent source of potassium, bananas are beneficial to your cardiovascular health. Potassium helps your body flush out extra sodium in the urine and it also reduces tension in the walls of blood vessels.
Additionally, being rich in fiber, eating a banana helps you feel satiated longer, which causes you to eat less during the day. In this way, eating a banana helps you maintain a healthy weight.
Chocolate can be beneficial for you as well, of course, if you always keep in mind the valuable advice “everything in moderation.”
Quality-made dark chocolate – the one that doesn’t contain preservatives and that isn’t high in fat and calories, can benefit your cardiovascular health as the flavonoids which are naturally found in chocolate can lower systolic blood pressure and bad LDL cholesterol levels.
Quality-made dark chocolate can also stimulate your brain, which can make you more attentive and alert.
And last but not least, I’m sure you’ve already heard that many people refer to chocolate as “mood food.” And this is for a good reason. Chocolate contains a high amount of polyphenols, which improve symptoms of anxiety, depression, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Now, let’s see how frozen chocolate-covered peanut butter banana sandwiches are made:
– 2-3 sliced bananas
– 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
– 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1. Slice the banana into 1/4 inches (0.7 cm) thick rounds and put half of the slices on a baking sheet. Set aside the other half of the slices.
2. Spread peanut butter on the slices of banana and then top with the other half of the slices.
3. Freeze the peanut butter banana sandwiches for an hour.
4. Melt dark chocolate with coconut oil in a small bowl.
5. Take the frozen sandwiches out of the freezer and dip them, one by one, in the melted chocolate. Then place them back on the baking sheet.
6. Freeze them for an additional hour.
7. Bon appétit!
