Losing weight is tedious and not very fun. So I’ve been looking for healthier versions of my favorite indulgences because, let’s face it, if I can’t have chocolate I”ll be one depressed Momma. Thanks to Pinterest, I came across this:
I was instantly intrigued and decided to try it out!
Here’s what you need:
1/2 cup – peanut butter, natural
1 large – banana
1 teaspoon – vanilla extract
2 tablespoon – coconut oil
2 tablespoon – maple syrup, pure
1 tbsp – cocoa powder, unsweetened
First, stir up the peanut butter until its creamy and smooth. I warmed it up for about 10-15 seconds to make it a little easier.
Then, I put all of the ingredients into a blender and mixed until smooth. (I don’t have an actual blender–I had to make due with my smoothie maker. This was not easy and I do not recommend it!)
Once the mixture is a smooth cream, pour it into an 8×8 pan. The mixture doesn’t need to go all the way to the edge. Then, place it into the fridge or freezer and leave it there until firm. Cut into squares and enjoy! (Store the extras in the fridge.)
This was actually pretty good! It was just REALLY rich. But I will definitely be making this again!
