Gone Bananas

Love bananas? This is a favorite treat that big and little kids will enjoy.

Granola Pops

Granola Banana Pops

(makes 2 servings)


1 banana

1 heaping cup of dark chocolate chips

2 Tbsp. coconut oil


Slice the banana and place the slices on tray. Put the tray in the freezer until the bananas are frozen solid (about an hour).

Meanwhile, place the chocolate chips and the coconut oil in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and then stir. Microwave for another 15 seconds and stir again, until all the chocolate is melted and smooth. Put it back in the microwave for another few seconds, if necessary. Don’t overheat. Set the chocolate aside to cool.

When the bananas are frozen, dip them into the cooled chocolate and coat on all sides. Let any excess chocolate drip off before rolling on crushed granola; set the slice down on parchment or waxed paper. Insert a popsicle stick. Put the slices back in the freezer right away. You can store the slices in a freezer baggie once the chocolate has hardened.

Variations: add a dab of peanut butter on top of the frozen banana before you dip it.
