Try It Tuesday

Happy first day of Autumn, folks!

Today was a BEAUTIFUL day in OKC! Huff the Babe and I even went outside and played! And we didn’t melt! Ahhhh, the sweet cool days of fall. I’m so happy they’re back!

 

Sadly, today’s Try It isn’t a pumpkin or caramel flavored treat (although I have pinned many ideas on Pinterest, so don’t worry; they’re coming!). However, today’s Try It IS healthy and yummy!

Here’s what you need:

~a banana

~peanut butter (or almond butter; basically whatever nut butter your heart desires)

~1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used chunks because its all we had)

~wax paper

~small cookie sheet

That’s it!

 

First, line a small cookie sheet with wax paper. Then, slice up your banana as such:

Spread some peanut butter on a slice and make a “banana sandwich” with another slice:

Keep going until all of the slices have been “sandwich-ified”. Then, place them on the wax paper-lined cookie sheet and stick in the freezer for about an hour. After the hour is up, melt your chocolate in the microwave:

Grab the bananas from the freezer and dip them into the chocolate, covering half of them. Pop ’em back into the freezer for another hour and then voila! your healthy snack/dessert is ready to be devoured:

Honestly guys, if these things last until Huff the Hubs gets home, it’ll be a miracle. These little banana bites were so incredibly tasty AND easy! I think I might make these my “go-to” snack to take to parties!
