Healthy Snacks: Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Mini-Sandwiches

The title of this post is about as much of a mouthful as these amazing mini-sandwiches, and trust me, they are a very yummy mouthful. If you love bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate, this snack is for you!
Lately I've been really hungry because I've been working out a lot, and I have a lot of walking to do for my classes, but I haven't been wanting to eat unhealthy snacks like chips or anything really sugary. So, I took to Pinterest to find some healthy ideas and wasn't disappointed! I found a lot, so I decided I'm going to do a "Healthy Snacks" series, and post all of the recipes I try! They will all be gluten free and vegetarian since I'm allergic to wheat, and don't eat meat (ha ha ha...insert cringe-y face), so anyone can eat them! I'm super excited for this because it means I get to eat a bunch of yummy healthy snacks! Without further ado, here are the Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Mini-Sandwiches!

Ok these little globs are a little piece of heaven! Each bite is filled with the perfect amount of bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate!

 The whole process is really simple: start by cutting a couple of bananas into little chucks about 1/4 of an inch thick. Match up the slices for the mini-sandwiches to make sure there is an even amount.

 Look at that peanut butter.

 Spread some peanut butter on one little slice, probably about half of a tablespoon.

 Put the other slice on top, making a little sandwich.

 Once you have made all of the sandwiches, put them on a plate and place them in the freezer for about an hour. (Don't you just love dorm freezers...)

Melt some chocolate in the microwave, or the stove top - just make sure the chocolate doesn't get burned! Then dip half of each sandwich into the chocolate. I didn't take any pictures of this part because it was extremely messy haha. Once all of the sandwiches are dipped, put them back in the freezer for another hour. After they've all set, they are ready to eat! I didn't eat all of them at once of course, so I kept them in a tupperware container in the freezer. I finished them in a couple of days, and they kept just fine!

Alright, so that's it for the first healthy snack in the series! I have a lot planned, so expect many more in the coming weeks!

What healthy snacks do you like to eat?

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have a great day! :)

  4. These look so yummy! Although Im not the biggest fan of bananas, they'd probably work well with strawberry or apple maybe. I'd love to see some more healthy treats.
