Cutting out processed snacks is super easy with recipes like this one. I encourage you to stop buying industrial pastries, chips, and packaged juices and make yourself a tray of these Banana Bites to snack on instead – you’ll love them!
Bananas are one of my favorite fruits to have as a mid-afternoon snack for 4 reasons:
- Great source of energy so you can go about the rest of your day.
- They’re very filling and helps you avoid over-snacking.
- They’re rich in tryptophan, which means if you eat them in the middle of the day it will help you rest better at night.
- A very alkaline food, which makes them very easy to digest and they don’t cause heartburn.

Banana Bites- the perfect snack to help stabilize glucose levels.
One of the best strategies for keeping the glycemic index stable is to combine fruit with a nut spread. The fat and protein in a nut spread are absorbed slowly when they are stuck to the carbohydrates in a banana, which favors digestion and slow glucose absorption.
Peel the bananas and cut them into slices.
Place the slices on a tray in pairs. Spread the peanut butter between them.
Put them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie.
Pour the chocolate over the banana slices. Then dip them in the granola and shredded coconut mix.
Return them to the refrigerator for another 20-30 minutes. Enjoy!
