Candy-like snacking, made GUILT FREE! Making a big batch of these and keeping them in the freezer for moments when a craving strikes is a good idea. The irresistible combination of nuts and chocolate, the sweetness of banana, and salty crunch of the pretzel make these an excellent craving killer.

Preparation

  1. Prep 24 mini baking cups (the type used for mini muffins/candy) by placing them onto a baking sheet or in a mini muffin tin.
  2. Slice your banana(s) into 24 rounds. Set aside.
  3. Melt the vegan chocolate chips and 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil together over a double boiler or in the microwave (be careful not to burn if using a microwave).
  4. In a small bowl, combine almond butter and 1/2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil and stir together (the consistency should still be thick, but a little easier to pour).
  5. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into the bottom of each muffin liner. Set aside remaining chocolate.
  6. Place a slice of banana on top of the melted chocolate.
  7. Spoon some almond butter on top, enough to cover the top and sides of the banana.
  8. Spoon about 1/4 teaspoon of the remaining melted chocolate on top of the almond butter.
  9. Place 1 mini pretzel twist on the top.
  10. Place your baking pan or muffin tin into the freezer for about 30 minutes to allow the bites to set.
  11. Once they are set, store in an airtight container/bag in the freezer.
  12. When ready to eat, remove from the freezer and allow to sit at room temperature for 2-3 minutes.
  13. Enjoy!

Notes

Cooking time accounts for setting time in the freezer. I recommend storing these in an airtight bag/container in the freezer.
