So, basically every time I tell you guys that I simply detest bananas…I guess I’m lying. I don’t mean to, but I’m pretty sure I make an amendment to that statement at least once a week on this blog.
Today is Amendment XVI.
Because the combination of maple syrup and peanut butter is tremendous and a frozen banana just happens to be a nice little vehicle for said combination. (I’m trying as hard as I can to make some connection to Arrested Development here…frozen bananas, money in the banana stand, George Michael and Maeby…I’ve got nothing.)
Nothing. Except that these are delicious and I already ate a whole banana’s worth of them this afternoon.
Frozen PB Maple Banana Bites
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/4 C creamy peanut butter
- 2 T maple syrup
- cinnamon/cocoa powder (optional)
Combine the peanut butter and maple syrup. Slice the banana and dip each pieces in the PB mixture. The cut side of the banana is sort of slippery, so you may need to use a spoon or knife to make sure the whole banana piece is covered. Then sprinkle with cinnamon and cocoa powder.
Stick a toothpick in each piece and freeze for at least an hour.
