Banana + Fries? Say what? For some people, a big bowl of ice cream covered in chocolate is considered a perfect dessert. Or several Oreos soaked in milk is the best snack ever! How about taking a healthier approach, with a little sugary love included? Bananas have natural sugars, and dark chocolate will have lots of antioxidant love! Chocolate Covered Banana Fries will satisfy your sugar craving for sure!
With all my diet changes, trying to find a satisfying treat can be a challenge. It may be easy for some people, unless you loved ice cream, cake, and brownies A LOT!
You can find recipes for banana bites on the internet, and in your local grocery store freezer section. I do love banana bites, who doesn’t? So I decided why not have more than just a bite of a banana?
The recipe can be a bit messy in the process. Messy makes the recipe even better! This treat would be fun to make with your kids! You can double the chocolate sauce below, and double or triple dip those lovely bananas!
I may need to make more ASAP!

With sheet pan, covered in parchment paper, peel bananas, cut the bananas in half, then cut one half in four pieces, continue process. Image above shows how banana fries are cut.
With double boiler, stove top set to medium, place chocolate chunks, coconut oil, and coconut sugar in pan, let melt together. Once melted remove from burner.
Use a fork or utensil that will help drain excess chocolate. Place bananas in chocolate and carefully coat each side, with fork transfer to parchment covered sheet pan.
Since the parchment will have excess chocolate around bananas, you can then transfer dipped bananas onto another clean parchment sheet, then freeze the bananas.
Optional - you could dip the bananas two or three times in chocolate (you may need to double chocolate sauce,) to completely coat the bananas evenly.
Let bananas freeze for at least six hours, or overnight.
