Insta Meals Monday: Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Ok, so I really had no idea what to call these bad boys because let's just say there is no name to describe their awesomeness. The recipe for Primal Fudge is what sparked the creation of these tiny bits of deliciousness. I took her recipe, modified and created Peanut Butter Banana Bites. They are gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and paleo. So. Good.

The Recipe: Peanut Butter Banana Bites

What you need:
1/2 c coconut oil
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 c chunky peanut butter (or almond butter - can also be creamy, but chunky's better)
2 tbsp honey
1 banana (chopped)

Heat coconut oil in a pan on the stove until melted. Stir in cocoa powder, peanut butter and honey. Grease a mini muffin tin (you could also use mini muffin liners, but if you're asking me that's wasteful) and pour equal amounts of cocoa mixture into each muffin section. Place a slice of banana in each muffin section and gently press until the cocoa mixture covers the banana (you may see the outline of the banana beneath the surface). Chill for 30 minutes. 

Use a spoon to pop the bites out of the muffin tin. Devour. You will. I promise. And if you don't - you must not like coconut. Or chocolate. Or banana. Or peanut butter. What's wrong with you!?

The banana takes on an ice cream like consistency that I can't explain and well, The Farmer and I can't stop eating them and he doesn't even like chocolate AND I'm perfectly fine with giving Sweet P one of these for breakfast. Yep. Chocolate for breakfast. 

Stay tuned for another version coming soon. 

NOTE: If you don't want the banana, simply omit. The result is still amazing and very similar to fudge.
