This recipe was found in the June/July edition of Light and Tasty. It is 4 points per serving and more importantly it is a dessert with CHOCOLATE.
- 1⁄2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (You could experiment with other chip flavors for fun and variety)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1⁄4 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons nonfat milk
- 4 medium firm bananas, halved
- 1⁄3 cup finely chopped nuts (I used walnuts, but again you could experiment with different chopped nuts for fun and variety)
- 8 wooden sticks (I used wooden skewers and found it hard to spear the banana securely. Possibly popsicle sticks might)
- In a small heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate chips and honey, stirring constantly.
- Add peanut butter stirring until smooth.
- Remove from heat and stir in milk.
- Peel bananas and insert wooden sticks into one end.
- Spoon chocolate mixture over bananas to coat. (I rolled the banana in the mixture for the best coating results.).
- Sprinkle with nuts and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
- Freeze for no less than 30 minutes and serve frozen.
This was a really hard recipe for me to rate. Because the chocolate/peanut butter mix is awesome. We ate it off the spoon and it was great. But I could not find a way to get it to adhere to the bananas enough so that it stayed. I used peanuts as the nuts and froze them. When we went to eat them (really anticipating something yummy), very little of the chocolate or nuts stayed on the bananas. So basically it was just eating a frozen banana with a brush of chocolate. Probably not something that I would make again. But please keep these healthy recipes coming! I love trying them!
