Chocolate and Peanut Butter Banana Treats

Peanut butter and chocolate have both been popular since the day of the Aztec. A legume ground into a paste made into a delicious spread. Chocolate has it's own appeal as well. The aztecs would use the peanut to make tooth ache spread. Chocolate was offered to the gods and also drank by royalty.

Who knows how peanut butter and chocolate first got together, but now that they are together the delicious combo can be found in many different forms. Peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes are amazing, peanut butter cookies drizzled with chocolate are delicious as well. In fact, there has to my knowledge never been a regret that chocolate and peanut butter were put together. Today, chocolate and peanut butter is a day for you to try that recipe where the duo of chocolate and peanut butter comes together.

This chocolate and peanut butter recipe also combines bananas. Bananas are the cheapest fruit in the U.S. The recipe is a great frugal treat or snack that is also healthy but indulgent.

  • 1 banana
  • Peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Olive oil
  • Desired toppings (see notes above)

  1. Peel banana and cut into 1/2 inch slices. Place slices on parchment paper on baking sheet and freeze for about an hour. Place a small dollop of peanut butter on top of each banana slice. Return to freezer and freeze for another 30 minutes or so.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and a tiny bit of olive oil. Stir until smooth. Spoon some of the melted chocolate on top of each banana/peanut butter slice. Sprinkle on toppings. Return to freezer to set the chocolate, and keep frozen until ready to eat.
