These are strange little treats, but they sure taste good! Mine had a bit more texture because I used chunky peanut butter, but I actually liked the extra crunch that it gave to these. I also sprinkled half of them with mini chocolate chips, and left half plain, just to see which I liked better... but I like them both ways! Thanks for a tasty, easy way to get an "ice cream" fix without all the dairy. :)
So glad I re-found this bookmarked recipe when I had extra bananas to use up! So quick and delicious. I used pumpkin seeds, and put some of the goodies in muffin cups but some I just plopped onto a sheet of parchment on a cookie pan. Works just as well. Would like to try 'em with cashew butter and/or chocolate chips too! Thanks so much for a keeper snack!
...yummy treats!! I used my own nutbutter mix (a homemade blend that varies batch to batch, this time it had cashew, peanut and walnut...yum-yum) I took a lazygurl approach and threw the seeds in my little processor...added two sm. frozen black nannas the butter etc...then hand mixed in about 1/4 cup of carob chips...& spooned them into the muffin cups...and topped w/ suggested pecan (and more chips ) YUM! thanks...:)
O.K...as you can see I did deviate only a bit from your recipe. I omitted the pecan on top and melted a few chocolate chips with about 3 T. of p.b. and swirled on top. Kind of trying to get the Reese's peanutbutter cup taste. Also, ran out of sunflower seeds because I doubled the recipe and so threw in some honeyroasted peanuts into the food processor along with all the other ingredients. I used the natural peanutbutter that you grind your own in the gourmet markets. Wonderful taste combo with the banana. I agree with Anna about not letting them sit out too long as they turn to mush within about 10 minutes. Made for May's AU-recipeswap 08'
These are very unique wee treats. They are indeed yummy and I seriously suggest that you at least double the recipe and if you have kids your going to need more than that! They are a breeze to make up . I whizzed the banana and pb, cinnamon and vanilla in the food processor then stirred in the seeds. I used Adams crunchy pb. You really need to leave them in the paper cups to serve because they will soften and start becoming gooey quickly. They aren't something that you can take outside to leisurely nibble on. Take just what you want at the time out of the freezer. They are SO yummy and easy that I might even suggest keeping some in the freezer on a regular basis.
