Chocolate Dipped Banana Bites

Chocolate dipped banana bites is a quick snack recipe. Made of just two ingredients, this simple treat is healthy and delicious. Chocolate is a rich source of metabolism-boosting MUFAs (MonoUnsaturated Fatty Acids-MUFAs are a healthy type of fat) and bananas are the richest source of resistant starch, hence the result tends this dessert to a weight loss winner.




These frozen treats don’t require a whole lot of effort and are great to keep on hand for a quick grab. In just a few minutes and with minimal ingredients (2 ingredients), anybody can have these banana bites dipped in chocolate ready to place in freezer. After a couple of minutes in the freezer, they are ready to be enjoyed. I have used the normal toothpicks for dipping easily, but any fancy skewers can be opted too. Try this fun and easy dessert that uses on-hand ingredients. These can be a best treats for kids. Below is the recipe for these chocolate dipped banana bites.
