Chocolate Banana Buttons

We were invited to a friend’s home for dinner and I needed a quick, healthy dessert bordering on decadent. Fortunately, I had a few bananas that had ripened perfectly, and with a couple simple ingredients, I put them to good use …

3 – organic bananas
Fresh strawberries
1/2 cup raw chocolate or cacao
Avocado oil

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel and slice bananas into ½” pieces and assemble on parchment. Freeze for 45-60 minutes.

Melt the chocolate: Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Place a glass bowl over the pan and add chocolate. As the chocolate begins to melt, add avocado oil as needed until you have a smooth consistency.

Dip banana buttons in chocolate and reposition on parchment paper. Freeze 15-20 minutes. Store in the freezer until ready to enjoy!


Serve with fresh strawberries for a delicious treat!
