I cannot take any credit for this recipe. I found a while back on hayleyhobsonblog.com and quickly added to recipe bookmarks to try during summer time. SO WORTH IT! A MUST!
- KID TESTED AND APPROVED
1/3 cup sunbutter
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp cinnamon or drop of cinnamon essential oil
1/3 cup all natural dark chocolate pieces or chips (at least 70% cacao)
1 T coconut oil
popsicle sticks or bamboo skewers
Mix sunbutter, vanilla, and cinnamon together until well mixed.
Peel and cut bananas in half. Slice the halves vertically in half.
Divide your sunbutter mixture into 4 equal portions. Use 1 portion of sunbutter per 2 banana slices. Spread the sunbutter mixture over half of the banana slices.
Press your popsicle stick or skewer on top of the sunbutter and top with the remaining banana slices.
Place the banana pops in the freezer and freeze until firm.
When your banana pops are all the way frozen, melt your dark chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler over low heat. (If you don’t have a double boiler, use a large skillet filled with some water and place a smaller pot inside the skillet on top of the water. Put your chocolate and oil in the smaller pot.) Stir until melted and smooth.
Dip each banana pop in the dark chocolate and place on parchment paper. Place back in the freezer for a few minutes until chocolate is hardened and cold. Enjoy!
