Baked Bananas and Chocolate (:

3 Apr

What happens when you’re dinner is absolutely amazing?  You must make an even more amazing dessert!!!

I have this coconut flour and I bought it not only because it was on sale, but because I’m dying to make No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls, and I need to experiment with it.  I love broiled, or fried, bananas so since we have a million bananas in the fruit basket, I got this idea.  It didn’t come out exactly as I had planned, but I very much enjoyed it.

Baked Bananas and Chocolate

Serves 4

3 bananas

1-2 Tbsp. coconut flour

3 Tbsp. vegan chocolate chips

2 Tbsp. non-dairy milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. agave nectar

2 Tbsp. raw, whole almonds, processed in the food processor briefly, or chopped finely

1 Tbsp. shredded, unsweetened coconut, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Peel the bananas and slice off the tips; cut in half the long way, then slice each half in half to make 4 long slices.  Pour the coconut flour onto a plate and dredge the banana pieces in it.  Line a baking sheet with parchment and place the dredged banana on.

Bake in the oven for 8 minutes, flip, then bake another 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the chocolate sauce.  In a double boiler combine the chocolate, vanilla, milk, nectar, and almond pieces.  Stir to combine.

When the bananas are done, carefully move them to a serving plate then drizzle with the chocolate sauce, garnish with the coconut flakes and serve.

Then, of course, enjoy!

    I can’t begin to tell you how good this was. My kiddos called it banana nachos. I love quick, easy and “healthy” treats. Chocolate is good for you, right? ;)
