Chocolate Dipped Bananas {Super-Easy & Healthy Snack}

Are you ready to change your healthy snack game?


As far as snacks go, this is about as easy as it gets. Plus, they’re delicious and change things up from your normal everyday snack. 

Here’s My Notes:

1)If you want these to keep longer than just the afternoon, cover the entire banana with chocolate. The chocolate seals the banana and prevents browning.

2)I’m crazy about sweet & salty snacks, so the salted peanut topped bananas are my favorite. Salted pistachios would be amazing, but they’re a bit pricey. The peanuts are a nice alternative, but if pistachios are in your budget…go for it! 

3)I chose to use 60% Cocoa Bittersweet Chocolate Chips because they have less sugar than regular semi-sweet chocolate chips, but use your favorite kind chocolate chips. 

🍌 Chocolate Dipped Bananas {Super-Easy & Healthy Snack}

Yields: 12 banana pops; six servings 

Ingredients 

6 firm bananas 

12oz. bittersweet chocolate chips

12 wooden popsicle sticks

Optional toppings: chopped salted peanuts, sprinkles, and chopped M&M’s 

Directions 

Place the chocolate chips in a small bowl and place in the microwave for one minute; stir. If the chocolate is not completely melted return back to the microwave for 30 more seconds. 

Cut the bananas in half and place a popsicle stick through each end. Using a small spatula, cover each banana with melted chocolate, place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Immediately sprinkle with desired topping; continue this process with all the bananas. Refrigerate for 15-30 minutes. I like mine to be cold, so I chill mine for 30 minutes. Enjoy !

Here is an apple version:


Dip apple slices in melted chocolate, and then immediately sprinkle with chopped, salted peanuts. Place directly onto a plate. Then chill for 10 minutes. I like to use Granny Smith apples or Golden Delicious. They are just my favorite kind of apple. Use your favorite, or whatever you have on hand. It’s a super quick and delicious snack.
