Peanut Butter Banana Cups

This is a guest post by Elizabeth, from Eudora Organics

As a mother of 2 I am always looking for healthy eating inspiration. I love nothing more than a quick and easy recipe to whip up knowing the whole family can indulge without the guilt factor. In my household we like to go ‘clean’ with as much of the food we eat as possible, so this means none of the bad unnecessary stuff like preservatives. I like to go as close to nature as possible with the food we eat. So with this in mind I give you this quick and easy treat that I guarantee will leave you asking for more.

All you need is 6 ingredients, 6 minutes of your time and a freezer! Try to go organic with as many of the ingredients as possible.

Wow, this sounds delicious! How long should we freeze them for, and do you then store them in the fridge – or keep them in the freezer? Thanks for sharing!

Hi Danielle, Tammy has commented on here suggesting that you leave them in the freezer until they are ready to eat and leave the ones you won’t eat in the freezer.

I have this in the freezer right now – not sure how long to freeze it for though!

Not long at all, about 20mins. You don’t want the chocolate to hard to bite into. I hope you enjoyed them 🙂

Just read this on FaceBook:

Freeze them until set. You can remove them from freezer for about an hour before serving them so they are not to hard to bite into. But only take out of the freezer what you are going to consume as the banana can go a little yucky if left to long

Hi Tammy, I only just checked the comments for my recipe. You are right – freeze them until set. And the banana does go yucky so only put out what you are going to consume. Thanks for letting everyone else know 🙂

What can I sub in for the honey that wouldn’t be too overpowering, can’t have agave either.

Amy, have you tried using Maple Syrup? I would try giving that a go as it is still reasonably healthy.
