Today I am sharing one of my FAVORITE healthy treats. I call them Heavenly Banana Bites. They truly are heavenly in my book, which means they are also easy to make, low-cal, filling and delicious!! The pictures practically explain this entire recipe, but I will outline the details as well. First, you will slice one medium banana into even portions since you will be matching up slices to make little “sandwiches.”
Next, grab about 1.5 tablespoons of your favorite peanut butter. In this case, I used a Healthy Harvest Creamy Organic Peanut Butter. It is so smooth and creamy, but I’m sure you could also use crunchy if that is your thing.
Next, spread the peanut butter on one half of the banana slices. Isn’t your mouth starting to water already?
I bet you know what is coming… make little sandwiches with the plain banana slices on top of the slices with peanut butter.
The only mistake I made with the photos is that you need to put your banana sandwiches on some parchment paper so they will not stick to your plate in the freezer. Place the banana sandwiches in the freezer for about an hour. Plate your dessert and drizzle with light chocolate sauce.
This example shows all the bananas, but this is two servings worth. Believe me, you will be FULL after 4 little sandwiches. So, lets summarize our ingredients and calorie estimates:
- One medium banana – Approximate 100 calories
- 1.5 tablespoons peanut butter – 300 calories if you use it all. I probably used about 1 tablespoon (200 calories)
- 1 tablespoon Light Chocolate sauce – 25 calories
Grand total per serving only 150-210 calories (depending on how much PB you use). Yippee! What is one of your favorite healthy snacks or dessert?
My Mom loves bananas. I bet she would love these!
Wow! That looks delish! Frozen would be good too!
I’ve made similar ones before but with just peanut butter and banana – i love your addition!
My son is allergic to peanuts, but it looks like I could easily substitute Nutella! Wouldn’t that be delish!
You can’t go wrong with chocolate, peanut butter, and banana! Plus they’re bite size, so you can have a few more 😉
I adore this combination of ingredients and the simplicity of the dessert!
These look absolutely amazing!
I’ve made chocolate dipped banana slices before, but never with peanut butter like this, yummy! I love how simple, and healthy it is!
Seriously yummy! And my favorite flavors to boot. I will have to try these.

These look yummy! I love how easy they are and yet how elegant and festive they look on the plate.

That looks delish, I am a huge fan of bananas… Looks like I am going to be having a lunchtime snack 🙂

I have been eating massive bananas, chocolate and peanut butter for years in quantities that were anything BUT healthy. Thanks for the tip on how to indulge “safely.”
