Frozen banana bites are a healthy treat that tastes anything but! Easy to customize and fancy up, these are sure to satisfy in the best way possible.
If you were to ask Anna what she loved to eat more than anything in the world, she’s probably tell you one of two things: hot dogs or chocolate. Sometimes she throws in donuts, but only because she likes the ones with chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles.
(What can I say, she’s easy to please.)
So when she came across frozen banana bites that were covered in chocolate on one of our grocery shopping trips, she was desperate to try them. Of course, she changed her mind when she saw the chocolate ice cream and we never ended up buying them.
Good thing the banana bites are super easy to make, because they were the perfect thing for us to make with Grandma.
Of course, when it came to toppings, she was very quick to
say shout rainbow sprinkles. The grown-up’s decided to throw in some other toppings like crushed pretzels and chopped nuts for good measure. You could also sprinkle with some kosher/sea salt for a deliciously simple topping.
Regardless of what you choose, the end result will always be … delicious.

Frozen Banana Bites
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2/3 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup nut butter
- 1 tbs oil (optional)
- Toppings of your choice: sprinkles, pretzel pieces, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, etc.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.
- Cut up the bananas into good-sized chunks, about 1-inch thick. Each banana should give you around 5 to 6 pieces.
- Heat the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave on high in 20 second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth.
- Dip the banana pieces in the chocolate mixture, cover completely, and transfer to the lined baking sheet. Make sure to leave some space between each banana. If the mixture becomes too thick, add canola oil 1 tbs at a time. Sprinkle the pretzel crumbs (or whatever topping you chose) on top.
- Transfer to the freezer for about an hour until hardened.
- Eat now, or wait until they are completely frozen for an entirely new treat!
- Store in an airtight container or zip-top bag and enjoy until they are devoured.
