As much as we love desserts and candy, they don't love always love us back. Overdosing on sugar can affect your mood, make you feel sluggish, and cause skin problems. Fortunately, this low-sugar dessert is a decadent alternative to sugar-packed options like banana bread.

These chocolate-covered banana bites are paired with almond butter. However, feel free to use whatever nut butter you like best. Peanut butter, cashew butter, and Nutella are delicious alternatives to try.


  • 2 bananas

  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips (if you prefer a sweeter treat, swap with semi-sweet)

  • ½ cup almond butter 

  • Flaky sea salt, optional


  1. Slice bananas into “coins” and lay them out on a parchment paper lined dish or tray.

  2. Spread some almond butter onto one of the banana coins and use another piece of banana to create a sandwich. Continue until all of your banana slices are used up. Pop the bananas in the freezer for an hour or so.

  3. Melt chocolate in a heat-safe glass bowl. (I melt mine in the microwave in 15 second increments.)

  4. Take the bananas out of the freezer and use a fork to gently dip each into the chocolate, so it covers at least half of the banana sandwich.

  5. Once all of the bananas are covered in chocolate and are back on the tray, sprinkle a little flaky sea salt on top of each one. Pop them back in the freezer until hardened, about 30 minutes.

  6. Enjoy immediately or store them in the freezer to savor at a later date. Your chocolate banana bites will stay fresh for up to a week (if they last that long).
