Chocolate and Granola Covered Bananas






First, grab 5 bananas and chop into, 2 inch, bite size pieces. 

     



Next. take 1 cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips add a splash of 1/2 and 1/2 and microwave for 30 seconds at a time, until chocolate is moderately creamy. You might have to add a few extra splashes of half and half to get the desired consistency.


It should look like this. Yummy!


Now grab your favorite granola or cereal. I like any cereal with honey and oats.

We store ours in pretty little glass jars on the counter. It lasts forever that way. It's a great little snack to grab by the handful when you are in a hurry.

Now grab your cutting board and dip each banana in a bit of chocolate just like this.



Next roll it in a bowl of your granola.

Keep going until you get them all dipped in chocolate and granola.


Now, break out the Hershey's syrup and go to town swirling. Swirl all over the bananas.






Are you getting hungry yet?




Make sure to stick them in the freezer for 20 minutes.

Remove them and enjoy!






Let me know what you think. Do you think this is a healthy snack? Would you make it for your family?

  3. This is such a nice recipe! As a student I always have a hard time finding a quick breakfast. I could totally do this recipe the night before and eat it in the morning. Might change a few things to make it more suitable for breakfast, but yum!

  4. YUM! Have you ever ordered an Edible Arrangement before? They have chocolate covered bananas as part of their arrangement sometimes and they are DELICIOUS. This seems like a much cheaper way though! I love it :)
