In a previous life I was lucky enough to go on a work jolly to South California (I KNOW). It was, pretty much, the only one over the course of eleven under-paid years, and it was amazing. Beach motel: check. Early morning beach walk and watching dolphins frollic in the sea: check. Putting on half a stone in a week: check.
Not kidding. Half a stone. In a week.
On the plus side, I learnt that frozen bananas on a stick is a real thing in SoCal. Be still my British heart. I thought it was all ‘Arrested Development’ nonsense.
These little banana bites are quite messy to make but that’s half the fun. It’s a good way to use up leftover birthday cake sprinkles, a couple of discarded biscuits or hundreds and thousands. Use whatever chocolate you like. I didn’t use coconut oil because it’s damned pricey and I don’t really like it TBH, so I went for butter. Budget-conscious vegans could use groundbut (i.e., flavourless) oil and it’ll be fine.
Crunchy, smooth and not too sweet. Yum.
