Chocolate Covered Banana Bites and Healthy Snack Ideas

Special thanks to ZeroCater for sharing this graphic!

Sometimes, you just want a few bites of something sweet but you don’t want to wreck your diet plan. That’s when I make Chocolate Covered Banana Bites. I can eat one and I’m good to go. I just have to make sure I don’t eat them all!

How to Make Chocolate Covered Bananas

About three months ago, I made a promise to myself to exercise every single day. Sometimes, it’s a long, intense workout and occasionally it’s a short one. But I get up and move every single day!

It’s all about baby steps with me, so once I got my workouts down pat, I began to restructure my eating plan. That’ includes eating healthier snacks. When you’re working out, you don’t want to undo all your hard work by eating unhealthy foods on a regular basis. I always save my once-a-week special splurge for Sunday dessert. Even then, I watch my portion size.

My husband and I both try to eat foods that are better for us. That means planning ahead and including small mid-morning or afternoon snacks. When it comes to snacking and craving something sweet, homemade granola bars are another favorite. Again, I have to make sure to watch portion sizes.

Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana Bites are a snack that’s easy to make. Make sure to store them in the freezer!

Chocolate Covered Banana Bites

Ingredients

  • 2-3  bananas
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • One tablespoon coconut oil
  • Toothpicks

Instructions

  1. Peel bananas and slice into 1-inch slices. Insert toothpicks into the banana slices and place on a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze for 25-30 minutes.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and coconut oil for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is smooth. Remove the banana slices from the freezer and dip each one in the chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is firm. Store in the freezer.

Another snack I’ve always enjoyed is Keto Fat Bombs. Of course, way back when I first started making these, they were called something else. I don’t even remember what they were called. I’ve never put them in a mold. I just mix all the ingredients up in a small, freezer proof bowl and once frozen, I break them into pieces like you do a chocolate bark.

Keto Chocolate Bark aka Fat Bombs

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup nut butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • non-sugar sweetener to taste (I use Splenda because I despise the taste of Stevia. My daughter tries to convert me but to no avail)

Stir everything together in a bowl until well combined and place in the freezer until firm. Break into pieces to eat. Make sure to store in the freezer.
