3 ingredient peanut butter banana bites are little sandwiches of heaven that make a great prep-ahead snack or treat.
Love bananas and chocolate?
Try making these delicious frozen chocolate-dipped peanut butter banana bites! They are super easy to make, only require 3 ingredients, and can be kept in the freezer until you get a craving for a bite of something sweet and chocolatey. We originally shared this idea 6 years ago, and I am excited to highlight it again as these are popular on TikTok currently!
What a yummy treat to make with the kids!
I love how versatile this recipe is. You could even dip these bananas in colorful sprinkles for a festive touch (think birthdays or another fun occasion), or you could dip them in rolled or slivered nuts for a different approach. Even coconut would be so delicious. They are a little messy to compile, and won’t turn out perfect, but they taste great!
Frozen Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Banana Bites
yield: 4 SERVINGS
prep time: 15 MINUTES
cook time: 30 MINUTES
total time: 45 MINUTES
These easy to make banana bites hit the spot when you're craving a chocolatey snack or dessert!
- 2-3 bananas, sliced
- 1/3 cup peanut butter (or any nut butter)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Peel and slice the bananas about 1/4 inch thick. Next, spread a small amount of peanut butter between two slices of bananas and continue doing this on all of them, making little banana sandwiches.
Place all of them on a baking sheet that has been covered in parchment paper. Freeze for about an hour. This makes it easier to dip in chocolate.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, in 15-second increments, taking the bowl of chocolate out to stir each time until melted. Add a tiny splash of coconut oil if chocolate clumps to smooth it out.
Dip one side of each banana bite in chocolate and place back on the parchment paper.
Place the baking sheet in the freezer until banana bites are completely frozen, about 30 minutes, and then enjoy! Store any leftovers in a covered container in the freezer. This made about 28 banana bites for me.
Tips for making peanut butter banana bites:
- While I used regular Skippy peanut butter, you can use any nut variety or brand you like. Try switching things with almond butter, cashew butter, or swap out creamy blends for crunchy!
- If you are finding that it is hard to spread the peanut butter, consider freezing the banana slices a bit first on the sheet pan. It does make it easier to spread I found.
- One reader stuck a pretzel in the middle for an added salty crunch—yum!
- Note that the exposed portion of the bananas will brown slightly in the freezer. You could either try vacuum-sealing the bites or use a little citrus juice to hinder the browning.
These little bites of frozen deliciousness are such a satisfying snack or dessert!
I think of them as similar to having a small bowl of ice cream, but it’s grab-and-go, portion-controlled, and so much better! Plus, since I can change up the peanut butter for Nutella or even a different nut butter, I can experiment with different flavors.
Next time I’m going to make a few batches to keep in the freezer because these went FAST! My family really enjoyed these chocolate-dipped peanut butter banana bites. I really think your crew will love these, too!
We have been doing this for years! We use almond butter, cashew butter, or even sunflower seed spread. And use dark chocolate YUMMY. Such a great snack when you’re craving something sweet.
Yes! So delish!
The Bananas would be too frozen to eat,, I Peel and Freeze all my ripe Bananas for smoothies and they are hard as an Ice Cube !!!
Are these hard when you take them out of freezer to eat? Like do they have to thaw a little or are the good to eat right away
I’m curious about that too if it’s something you let thaw out (for how long?) or if you just eat it right away? Would love to know too 🙂
I eat them frozen! So yum.
They thaw pretty quick I have them with my coffee in the morning. I do Weight Watchers and they are low point low cal only I sliced my bananas thinner and froze them on a tray then I spread the nut butter on froze again then dipped in dark chocolate chips.
The chocolate dried quick on the frozen banana. I did not have any trouble with mine turning brown .
They are great frozen 💕
I made these last weekend. They were amazing! I used dairy free chocolate, dipped the whole thing and then sprinkled unsweetened coconut on them. They tasted decadent, but were actually really healthy.
What are the calories per serving?
I’m curious about the calories on these also. Does anyone know
What are the calories and how many per serving?
I only have one concern th iij nk I am a Diabetic Type One and I want to ask what is it the Cholesterol, Carbohydrates, and lastly Sugars? Because I am very strict about my diabetes.
This really would be dependent on the type of “butter” you choose, so you would have to calculate the nutrition based on the labels of the ingredients you select.
It would entirely depend on the ingredients. What chocolate, nut butter, and even the ripeness of the bananas and how thick you coat the nut butter and chocolate would change all of those things. This likely isn’t a diabetic friendly dessert as there would likely be a lot of sugar and carbs involved.
Yes they are delicious and just right!
Does the lime juice give it a citrus flavor?
Here is my WW 0 points on Blue frozen bananasicle recipe – 1/2 banana spread with 1 Tbs Dannon Light & Fit greek yogurt and sprinkled with 13 Lilys No Sugar Added Dark Chocolate Baking Chips. Protip – if you don’t have popsicle sticks stick it on the end of a fork. 🙂
Oh wow!! Thanks. That sounds GREAT!! Good luck with your WW journey. 😁 You got it girl
I need some help with this one! When I tried to make them, the banana slices were kinda gooey and the peanut butter wouldn’t stick! Any ideas?
Cut up bananas and then freeze the bananas pieces first. Should allow y to smear the PB on easier. Then just freeze the finished product 😊
Try layering a vanilla wafer in there too! Delicious!!
Delicious! Just made them tonight!
Thank you for sharing-yum!
Mine didn’t come out the same! Iam thinking maybe next time,instead of chocolate chips I am going to opt fir the hard shell stuff. Have a feeling that at least for me, thst will work better.
