Ingredients

  • 2 cups almonds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and divided
  • 2 tablespoons honey (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 bananas, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch coins
  • 1 cup dark chocolate, chopped (60 percent cacao)
  • Toasted, chopped almonds for garnish

Steps

  1. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
  2. Place almonds in a food processor, and blend on high until smooth. Stream in 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and blend again until desired consistency is reached. Season with a pinch of salt and honey if using.
  3. Melt chocolate with remaining coconut oil, either over a double boiler or in a microwave until smooth.
  4. Take each banana slice and spread with a heaping teaspoon or so of almond butter. Top with another slice of banana. Freeze 'sandwiches' to firm up before dipping in prepared melted chocolate. Gently turn with a fork to coat evenly and allow excess to drip off before placing on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Garnish with assorted toppings (above) and pop in freezer to firm up. Save for later in the freezer or eat now.
