foods over dudes

califorknia : banana bites

if you religiously follow fashionista fairytales, you are well aware of many of my passions. a few of my favorites include my love for a latte, boys with beards, the california sunshine, street style, and of course, food. while tasty treats have always been a thing for me, los angeles has opened my eyes (and mouth) to many new yummies. and not to mention, my west coast sidekick, ali, is always down to grab some grub with me. because people who love to eat are always the best people, right julia child?

ali started a food instagram in may and y'all gotta follow it here! and you will notice that i am tagged in plenty of the pictures because eating is one of my hobbies... whenever i am hanging at ali's apartment, she has the best little edibles (that are healthy too!) so she is going to share some of the recipes with us! first on the list is BANANA BITES.

-yields 8 banana bites (16 banana slices)
1 medium banana
1 teaspoon natural (chunky or creamy) peanut butter
1.5 teaspoons of mini chocolate chips 
1 teaspoon water
1 teaspoon crush dry roasted peanuts (ali roasted her own peanuts... but if you can find roasted peanuts, all you have to do is crush them!)
a pinch of sea salt if desired!

1. cut banana in 1/3 inch pieces
2. spread peanut butter on 8 of the pieces of cut banana
3. top each PB banana with the remaining banana slices to make a sandwich
4. microwave chocolate chips until almost melted (we waited 40 seconds!)
5. add water to the bowl of chocolate chips & put back in the microwave for 10 seconds
6. mix the chocolate until it is a fluid consistency (sidenote: if it is runny, drain a little water and add more chocolate and pop back in the microwave)
7. drizzle the chocolate onto each banana bite
8. sprinkle the crushed peanuts and sea salt if desired
9. put in freezer until chocolate is solidified 
10. enjoy you guys!!! (& these little guys are only 40 calories each!)
