Ingredients
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 3-4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup (optional: I don' use it but you can add 1-2 tbsp if you like it a bit sweeter)
Instructions
  1. Cut bananas into thin slices. Place on a tray lined with parchment paper and pop into the freezer until frozen (I usually just do this overnight for ease)
  2. Once bananas are frozen, mix the coconut oil and cocoa together until thick enough to stick to the bananas (you may need more than 1 tbsp for this, as I had different results with different cocoa)
  3. One by one, dip the frozen bananas into the chocolate mixture, it should harden straight away. Pop the coated bananas back onto the tray and into the freezer for about 15 minutes to ensure they have fully set. Transfer to an airtight container and keep stored in the fridge or freezer until ready to eat
Recipe Notes

These snacks are best straight from the fridge or freezer (which makes them perfect as teething aides). They will melt if its a hot day, so don't do well travelling etc. You NEED to have frozen bananas in order for this to work - if they aren't frozen, the chocolate mixture will not set immediately, and the chocolate will run all over the parchment paper
