Teddie Peanut Butter Caramel Banana Bites
10 Medjool dates, de-pitted
2 ripe bananas
1/3 cup Teddie Peanut Butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 cup Teddie Premium Extra Large Virginia Peanuts, chopped
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Trim off the ends of each banana and slice the bananas into about ⅛-¼” thick slices (you should get about 10 slices per banana). Put the slices on the prepared baking sheet and place in the freezer to set for a few minutes.
Put the dates into a bowl and cover them with very hot water. Set aside for 15 minutes, or until soft.
Remove dates from the water and add to a blender along with 2-4 tablespoons of the date liquid. Blend on high until smooth. Start with 2 tablespoons of date liquid and add more as needed.
Remove banana slices from freeze and top each slice of banana with 1 teaspoon of Teddie Peanut Butter, followed by ½ teaspoon of the date caramel. Freeze for 1-2 hours.
Once bananas are frozen, melt the chocolate chips. Microwave the chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring well. Once smooth, add the coconut oil and mix well. Dip each frozen banana bit into the chocolate. Transfer back to the baking sheet. Top with chopped peanuts. Freeze for another 1 hour. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two weeks. Enjoy!
