All parents want their kids to be healthy. Moms try their very best to prepare healthy dishes at home, but thinking of what to give your kids for a snack or dessert can be one of the hardest tasks. You surely don’t want to let your kids get into the habit of just grabbing chips, chocolate bars or pop tarts. Fruits are healthy and perfect for a snack or dessert.
Bananas are one of the most accessible and inexpensive fruits in the market. They are full of nutrients, good for the heart, high in fiber, and easy to digest. While kids may not get bored peeling and eating bananas, why not transform them into an irresistibly yummy treat? Kids will surely love these chocolate banana bites. They are made with just 3 ingredients, bananas, melted chocolate, and nuts. As these banana bites are simple and fun to make, you can just set up all the ingredients on the counter and let the kids do the work – keep a watchful eye on the chocolate chips though as they will snack on them otherwise!
• 2 bananas
• ½ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
• ½ cup of peanuts
This recipe takes about 10 minutes to make. The banana slices need to freeze for 30 minutes. Serves 3 to 4.
