When I saw this super simple sweet treat idea on Pinterest a while back, I knew I just had to try it. More of an idea than a recipe with such little work and few ingredients. Such delicious end results.
and they're healthy treats too!
Frozen Banana Bites

Servings - 10 Serving size - 2 banana bites Points Plus per Serving - 3 Points+
Calories - 105, Total Fat - 4.1g, Carb. - 18.4g, Protein - 0.5g, Fiber - 1.2g
(* Weight Watchers - the information on calories and points plus above includes the nutrition information for the banana. If you choose to count the banana as 0 points+, then the points will be 2+ for one serving.)
4 medium sized ( 7"-8"), not too ripe, bananas
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. coconut oil
1 TBS. shredded coconut, for topping
1. Peel and slice banana each into 5 pieces, so you have 20 bites. Cover sheet pan with waxed paper for nonstick foil and place bites on pan. Set aside.
2. In microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips and the coconut oil gently or melt them over a double boiler on the stove.
3. Dip the banana pieces into the melted chocolate with a fork, letting excess drip off. Just put a thin coating of chocolate on each bite so you have enough chocolate for all the bites. ( I did end up using ALL the chocolate, so if you find you need more coating, you could increase the chips by 1/4 cup for an additional point+ per serving) If chocolate starts to harden, reheat in microwave for a few seconds. As you dip the banana bites, place them on prepared sheet pan.
4. Sprinkle coated banana bites with coconut and place in freezer until firm. Mine took about 30 minutes. Once the bites are firm, remove them from the pan and place in a freezer safe container or zipper plastic bag for storage. Keep stored in freezer. Enjoy!
