You can use dark, milk, or white chocolate, and extra toppings such as nuts, coconut, sprinkles, or even sea salt to add a unique twist. Plus, they can be made vegan or gluten-free, making them accessible to almost anyone at any age. What a great recipe! 

Ingredients and Tools Needed


  • 3 ripe bananas (firm, not overripe - little less brown spots)
  • 1 cups of chocolate chips or chocolate bars (dark chocolate chips, milk chocolate, or white chocolate chips)
  • 1 tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (optional, for smoother chocolate)
  • Toppings of your choice (e.g., crushed nuts, shredded coconut, sprinkles, sea salt)


  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper or silicone mat
  • Microwave-safe bowl or double boiler
  • Forks or toothpicks
  • Freezer

Step-by-Step Recipe

1. Prepare the Bananas: Peel the bananas and slice bananas into bite-sized pieces, approximately 1/2 inch thick. Place the banana slices on a prepared baking sheet or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat to prevent sticking.

2. Add peanut butter: In this recipe, peanut butter is added to the top of bananas. You can either skip this step or replace it with Greek yogurt or any other nut butter. 

3. Freeze the Banana Slices: Place the baking sheet with the banana slices in the freezer for about 30 minutes to an hour. This initial freezing helps the bananas hold their shape when dipped in chocolate.

4. Melt the Chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, melt the chocolate until smooth. If using a microwave, place chocolate and heat in 30-second intervals, stirring in between to prevent burning. Adding a tablespoon or two of coconut oil can help create a smoother, more manageable chocolate coating.

5. Dip the Banana Slices: Remove the banana slices from the freezer. Using a fork or toothpick, dip each banana slice into the melted chocolate, ensuring it is fully coated. Let any excess chocolate drip off before placing the slice back onto the lined baking sheet.

6. Add Toppings: While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle your chosen toppings over the banana slices. Popular options include crushed nuts (such as almonds, peanuts, or walnuts), shredded coconut, colorful sprinkles, or a light dusting of sea salt for a sweet and salty contrast.

7. Freeze Again: Once all the banana slices are coated and topped, return the baking sheet to the freezer. Freeze the banana bites for at least another hour or until the chocolate is fully set.

8. Serve and Enjoy: Your frozen chocolate-covered banana bites are now ready to enjoy! Transfer them to an airtight container and store in the freezer. They can be enjoyed straight from the freezer for a refreshing treat, or let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes if you prefer a slightly softer bite.

Tips and Variations

  • Different Chocolates: Experiment with a different type of chocolate mixture for a variety of flavors. Dark chocolate offers a rich, slightly bitter taste, while milk chocolate is sweeter and creamier. White chocolate can add a different dimension of sweetness. Any kind will make delicious chocolate-covered bananas.
  • Maple syrup: mix with maple syrup and peanut butter can add more sweetness. the recipe we used did not include this. 
  • Flavor Enhancements: Add a drop of vanilla extract or a pinch of cinnamon to the melted chocolate for additional flavor.
  • Healthy Boost: For an extra health kick, mix chia seeds or flax seeds into the chocolate before dipping the bananas.
  • Big batch: Make a good amount of them on a large baking sheet! You can collect them in a tight air-sealed bag or container, and enjoy your banana pops at any moment!
