Frozen Dark Chocolate Banana Cups


Well-known member
Mmmmm... banana and chocolate together. :in_love:


Makes 12 banana cups


1 large ripe bananas (not banana-bread-ripe--just eating-ripe is perfect)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
16oz (2 cups) cups dark chocolate chips or bars, chopped
2 teaspoons coconut oil, divided

Equipment: muffin tin, paper or foil muffin liners


Place liners in 12 muffin tins. In a small bowl, mash the banana until smooth, then whisk in the vanilla with a fork. Set aside.

Place about half the chocolate in a bowl with one teaspoon of coconut. Microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Use a spoon to pour a bit of chocolate in each muffin well, using the spoon to push it a bit up the sides. Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes or until set.

Once chilled and set, add a small dollop of the banana mash to each frozen well.

Add the rest of the chocolate and coconut oil to the bowl, and repeat melting process.

Top each of the cups with a few spoonfulls of the chocolate--note that you're not trying to fill the muffin tin--it should only cup up about 1/3 to 1/2 way.

Place in freezer for at least 2 hours, or until frozen.

Remove from muffin tin and store in an airtight container in freezer with a layer of wax paper in between.
