Homemade, clean eating candy! Just be sure not to over-indulge, enjoy sparingly!
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips (can also be dark chocolate cut into small pieces from a bar) - be sure to use high quality chocolate
1 medium banana, peeled and sliced into 16 rounds
1/4 cup all-natural peanut butter
1 tablespoon Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil, (unrefined extra-virgin preferred)
16 (1.25-inch) baking cups - small baking cups!
Place a sheet of baking paper on the counter top for preparation. Set the baking cups on top.
Melt chocolate in a double-boiler or in a small sauce pan over low heat. Allow to cool slightly. In the meantime, combine the melted coconut oil, protein powder and peanut butter.
Add approximately 1 teaspoon melted chocolate to the bottom of each baking cup, followed by one banana slice, 1 teaspoon peanut butter mixture, and lastly drop about 1/2 teaspoon melted chocolate in the center of each cup. Carefully place cups on a freezer safe dish or casserole pan. Cover and place in the freezer until set, approximately 1 hour.
NOTE: These Peanut Butter Banana Cups thaw quickly. For best results, enjoy one at a time after allowing to set at room temperature about 2-3 minutes.
