About the recipe
These bananas are so tasty - and addictive! Coated with dark chocolate and almonds. A sweet snack, not quite as unhealthy and completely without weird additives. The kids love them in their lunchboxes - like on Fridays, or before school holidays, when you want things to be a bit more festive!
1. Break the chocolate into smaller pieces and place in a glass or ceramic bowl. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a bain marie, by bringing a pot of water to the boil and place the bowl with the chocolate into the water, not touching the bottom of the pot. It's important that the bowl either has handles or is slightly larger than the pot, so it doesn't tip in. Stir the chocolate until fully melted.
2. Roast the almonds on a dry pan. Let them cool and chop them with your best and biggest knife. Spread onto a flat plate.
3. Peel bananas, pick off those super weird stringy bits on the banana itself (who came up with those anyway??) and halve the bananas.
4. And now things get a bit chocolatey and fiddley! Place a sheet of baking parchment on a plate. Carefully dip the bananas in the chocolate with a fork and then roll them in the almonds. Make sure the chocolate layer is as thin as possible. Place the bananas on the baking parchment and pop them in the fridge to cool.
5. Once the chocolate has cooled, the bananas can be eaten whole as a sinful but super tasty snack for dropping blood sugar. Or you can slice them into little pieces to use in the lunchboxes. Be careful as you slice, though, as the chocolate is prone to crack.
6. Keep the bananas in an airtight container in the fridge.
