These Mini Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas with Almonds only require 3 ingredients and are a delicous healthy treat for the summer! {gluten free, vegan}

It might be the fact that I’m 8 months pregnant and small tasks such as tying my shoes and rolling over in bed take much more energy than they used to , but lately I haven’t wanted to cook very much.  Every time I sit down to do blog post planning I’m always trying to think of recipes that only have a few ingredients and don’t require much cooking.  And, it’s always a big plus when they contain chocolate!

I know that I’m not the first person in the world to dip bananas in chocolate and freeze them, but we’ve been watching a lot of Arrested Development re-runs lately so I’ve had frozen bananas on the brain!  I decided to make a smaller version because tiny foods are always more fun to eat!

I also added some chopped almonds on top because they give these bananas a little salty bite and a lotta crunch!  Plus they add some protein :)  Chocolate covered frozen bananas are a nice, healthy snack for the summer when you’re craving all the ice cream.  I go through at least one bunch of bananas each week and these treats give me one more way to enjoy them.

 Check out my video to see exactly how to make these delicious little treats!

Mini Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas with Almonds


  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Category: Dessert, Snack, Gluten Free, Vegan

Ingredients

  • 3-4 medium sized bananas
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, I used non-dairy chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup chopped almonds

Instructions

  1. Peel the bananas, cut them in half width-wise and then cut each half in half, again, lengthwise.
  2. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave. Dip each piece of banana halfway into the chocolate and use a spoon to make sure the front and back are covered in chocolate. The bananas can be a little slippery so you might want to use a fork or toothpick to help pull them out of the chocolate. Place chocolate covered bananas on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper and sprinkle each one with chopped almonds.
  3. Place the bananas in the freezer and freeze for 1-2 hours, until frozen. Store bananas in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the freezer for 1-2 weeks.

      Thanks, Sarah! I’m finding that they are so great to have in the freezer because all I wanna do is eat cold food and chocolate these days :)

    So fun to come across this recipe. I’ve been peeling and freezing bananas lately and eating them in the afternoon for a healthy pick-me-up treat. They’re better than ice cream! I’m going to try your recipe for an extra special treat!
