I know you guys come here for great grain-free recipes. I also know that you count on me to create healthy recipes that don’t have a trillion ingredients. That’s why I made this Paleo Frozen Banana Bites recipe for you. These chocolate-dipped bananas are not only fabulous for Valentine’s Day, they’ll also prevent you from spending your entire life in the kitchen! What does that mean? More time with your loved ones. And more time for yourself. And a chocolate dessert. What could be better than all of that? Nothing, in fact.

Did I mention that these banana slices dipped in chocolate are irresistible? And that freezing the aforementioned banana slices gives you frozen chocolate covered bananas? As you can see, I’m kinda going bananas over this super easy, healthy Valentine’s Day recipe.

My older son devoured this healthy treat made from a mere three ingredients. I must admit though that he is a bit of a banana lover. He loves bananas and I love making banana recipes –think Banana Bread, Banana Ice Cream, and all of the frozen bananas that I keep in the freezer for smoothies.

Instructions
  1. Place sliced bananas on a parchment paper lined plate
  2. One by one, using a small heart shaped cookie cutter, cut banana slices into hearts
  3. Melt chocolate over very low heat
  4. Dip sliced banana hearts into chocolate, then sprinkle with coconut
  5. Place on parchment lined plate to set
  6. Freeze for 1 hour
  7. Serve

I based these Frozen Banana Bites on a recipe that I looked at over at Desi’s website Unconventional Kitchen. I met Desi through Jason Leake who runs one of my favorite websites Pro Blog School; his wife, Lisa Leake, is the founder of 100 Days of Real Food. She has a book coming out in August also called 100 Days of Real Food. Stay tuned for that.

So, back to bananas. When I decided to create my own frozen banana treat I also referred to a post called Chocolate Dipped Frozen Bananas from Joy the Baker. Her photography is stunning and I adore her writing. Since I so enjoyed the frozen banana desserts from Desi and Joy, and because it’s almost Valentine’s Day, I figured I’d make my Frozen Banana Bites heart shaped. I made a few other adjustments, then added shredded coconut, and voila these Frozen Banana Bites came to fruition.

If you want to make a treat that is not quite as healthy, dip these Frozen chocolate banana bites in sprinkles. My younger son (who is now a teenager –gasp!) loves sprinkles and was tickled pink when I made them for him this way.

  1. After so many years of being afraid to eat anything even vaguely sweet, your dessert recipes have come as a bit of a revelation to me.

    Not only have I never had one cause a flare and I feel such pleasure eating again. Thank you!!

    • For me, I have to stick to a Keto diet or my MS symptoms come back with a vengeance (especially imbalance/dizziness and fatigue)

      That said Keto does make me struggle to keep my appetite up….

    • Susan, I’m so happy to hear that my recipes are a revelation to you and that you can enjoy desserts again!

    • Renee, if you click the green text in the ingredients portion of the recipe that says “chocolate chips” you will be given that info :-)

  2. Oh Elana these are beautiful. I love that you made them into hearts.  I will have to make them with the coconut that sounds fun. I love them with peanut butter, but the coconut shreds are calling my name. 

    It was fun to meet you in Jason's group.  Hopefully we can meet in person some day.

  3. Sorry, this is off-topic, but has the search option been removed? I used to see a search box at the top of the page, but it appears to be gone. I’m having difficulty finding recipes from the drop-down menu.

  4. Just made these for my kiddo for valentines day…OMG out of this world good! Did half w toasted coconut slivers and half w toasted almond slivers. This is I
    on the permanent dessert menu!

  5. What a fabulous idea Elana. I had to rummage through my baking drawer to find a small heart cookie cutter, I’ll have to give this a go tomorrow :) I might even sprinkle some chops nuts on top as it sets. Thanks for the idea and recipe.

    • I am allergic to bananas :(. Could I possibly use another fruit. Recovering from pnemonia at the moment that lead to heart failure so really interested in a great sub that’s healthy, fun and a little sexy. ;). Ideas anyone.
