Bananas

Peanut Butter (optional)

Coconut Oil**

Cocoa Powder

Raw Local Honey or Maple Syrup

(see note below for substitutions)

Directions

1.) Peel your bananas. Slice into 1/2”-1” pieces and freeze. (Go ahead.. Spread some peanut butter on top of the banana slices. You’ll be glad you did)

2.) Once bananas are frozen, make the chocolate coating. In a double boiler, melt coconut oil. Remove from heat, then stir in cocoa & sweetener, let cool to room temperature.

3.) Put the sprouted buckwheat in a shallow dish next to the chocolate coating

3.) Remove banana slices from the freezer. Dip into the chocolate coating. Let first coat harden, and dip again. Quickly, before the second coat hardens, roll in buckwheat to coat & refreeze.

*You can use whatever cereal or granola you have on hand- just make sure to break into smaller pieces if necessary

**Coconut oil will melt at room temperature. Store in the freezer.

**Store-bought chocolate chips can be used instead of the coconut oil, cocoa powder & honey.

*Frozen s’mores anyone?! Freeze a toasted marshmallow instead of banana slices, and use graham cracker crumbs in place of buckwheat.
