Chocolate Covered Banana Bites

This recipe is SO simple, SO healthy, and SO delicious! It only requires 2 ingredients: cocoa powder and a ripe banana. I somehow created this concoction a few years ago while playing around in the kitchen, and couldn't be more proud of it! Sometimes the best things are right in front of us.



-1 ripe banana

-2 t. cocoa powder


Step 1: Acquire some ripe bananas (this whole bag of bananas was marked down to $1.00, I couldn't resist...bananas for daysss).

Step 4: Seal ziploc bag, removing as much air as possible (without smashing the banana slices). Then rub the cocoa powder on the banana slices until a chocolate paste begins to form & no more cocoa powder is visible. Evenly spread banana slices, creating one flat layer in bag.
