banana+peanut butter=delicious!

anything that combines peanut butter and bananas makes me happy and if you mix chocolate in as well, it can't get much better. sometimes i think i could live off of those three ingredients. 

i found on pinterest some chocolate covered banana bites. after reading the recipe closer, i realized peanut butter was also on the ingredient list and i had to make them asap! you can find the original recipe here

i adjusted the recipe a little to fit my taste and they turned out perfect.

banana bites

2 bananas sliced into bite size pieces
1/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 T peanut butter
crushed peanuts, coconut, sprinkles... to garnish

melt chocolate and peanut butter for 1 minute in the microwave, mix until nice and smooth. dip sliced bananas in the chocolate mixture {they don't have to look perfect}. garnish with whatever you feel like, i used crushed up peanuts, which turned out great. i placed mine on a plate covered in plastic wrap and put them in the freezer for an hour until hardened. i then placed them in a plastic bag and put back in the freezer until ready to eat.

here is the banana butter from chocolate covered katie that i decided to make. i eat a lot of peanut butter, i think i have an addiction. i thought it might be better for my waste line to make some banana butter to cut some calories. it is a fantastic hint of banana to my peanut butter fix, you should try it! find the recipe here. you can store it in the fridge and it is wonderful on a slice of toast.
