Frozen Banana Truffles Frozen Banana Truffles

These bite-sized truffles make a delicious frozen treat, perfect for serving at a party… or anytime you need something sweet!

2 medium ripe bananas
3 oz dark chocolate chips (at least 70% dark)
2 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp coconut oil, melted
1 pinch sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the bananas into 1/2 inch disks, then arrange them into a single layer on a dish, lined with parchment paper. Place in the freezer to chill, while you melt your dark chocolate. To melt the chocolate, simply break the bar into chunks, transfer to an oven-safe bowl, and place the bowl in the oven for about 10 minutes. Check it after 5 minutes, to avoid burning, and stir well! Remove the banana slices from the freezer, then carefully dip each slice into the melted chocolate, coating evenly. After coating each slice, place them back onto the parchment paper and return the dish to the freezer to let them freeze completely. The chocolate will be set within 30 minutes, but the bananas take a few more hours to get frozen and creamy– like ice cream. Mix together the almond butter, coconut oil, and sea salt. Transfer the mixture to a plastic sandwich bag, and snip off the corner to create a “piping” bag! Place a dollop in the middle of each truffle. Return to the freezer to freeze until solid, then serve chilled! They are delicious either way, but we recommend waiting until they are really ice-cream-like. Preferably, let them freeze overnight!
