- 1 medium banana
- 4 tsp creamy peanut butter
- 4 tsp shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 TBS cacao nibs
- 1 TBS dried cranberries, chopped
- 2 skewers (optional)
- Peel the banana and chop it in half. Insert a skewer into the cut side of the banana, and push it in a few inches. Popsicle sticks work well, too. You can also skip the skewers if you don’t have any around the house.
- Place the bananas on a plate and freeze them for about 30 minutes to an hour. In the meantime, make sure that your peanut butter is at room temperature. This will make the peanut butter easier to spread later.
- Mix the coconut, cacao nibs, and cranberries together and spread them out on a flat plate.
- Take the banana out of the freezer. Using a butter knife, spread a thin layer of peanut butter on the banana and roll it on the plate with the toppings. Alternatively, you can just sprinkle the toppings on top, but it might be more difficult for the toppings to stick this way. I had some extra toppings left on the plate after rolling the banana in it.
