Post Workout Frozen Bananas

I have found these to be fantastic pre or post workout snacks.  They are simple to make and great for a quick snack. Here is the recipe I used to make these:

INGREDIENTS

    • 2 ripe but firm bananas
    • 6 ounces dark chocolate, chopped, or semisweet chocolate chips
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

PREPARATION

    1.  Line a baking sheet with nonstick foil or parchment paper.
    2.  Cut the bananas in half and insert a Popsicle stick into each half, as shown. Place them on the baking sheet and freeze for 15 minutes.
    3.  Meanwhile, melt the chocolate with the oil in a Pyrex measuring cup in the microwave (check it every 30 seconds) or in a half-full pan of simmering water (about 2 minutes). Stir until smooth.
    4.  Roll each banana half in the chocolate.
    5. Freeze until the chocolate sets, 30 minutes. Serve or freeze in an airtight container for up to a week.
