Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites Recipe
Did you know that bananas are the cheapest fruit in the U.S.?
You can purchase a few bananas for under $1.00 – probably the best deal at the grocery store.
Incorporating more bananas into your daily diet can certainly help you save money on food. The trick is finding new ways to use them. I, myself, rarely just eat a banana.
But recently I’ve been researching “alternative” banana recipes and have found an abundance of fun and creative ideas.
This particular recipe is one I found on Pinterest from the food blog Forgiving Martha. I like it because it’s pretty healthy – but still indulgent.
Please note: These must be served frozen. I accidentally left some frozen bananas on the countertop, and when I returned a little while later, they were thawed, soggy, and brown. Ew!
