Starting a new semester means setting personal goals, one of which is usually to eat healthier. We're all human, so this may need to be done in baby steps. Start with your dessert, and satisfy your sweet tooth with these frozen banana bites.

Yes, the chocolate kind of offsets the whole "healthy" thing from the bananas. Yes, it was impossible to resist the bowl of melted chocolate in front of me while making these. But, life is about balance. Like I said, baby steps.

What's also dangerous about these is that they're bite-sized, so you can eat 20 of them in one sitting (guilty). At that point, just give up on calling this a healthy recipe.

  • Step 4

    Add chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval.

    #Spoontip: Coconut oil is optional because it can be expensive, but it makes the chocolate melt down to a smoother consistency.

  • Step 5

    Once your banana sandwiches are frozen, poke them with a skewer or toothpick and dip them into the melted chocolate. Transfer back to baking sheet to harden, then enjoy!
