Chocolate and Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Ingredients –

Method –
1. Slice the banana into equal chunks and place on a plate covered in parchment paper

2. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes

3. Meanwhile, mix the peanut butter powder with splashes of water until it forms a thick paste

4. Chop the dark chocolate into chunks and put into a glass bowl that can sit above a saucepan

5. Fill a saucepan ¼ full with water and start to boil

6. Once boiling, turn down to simmer and place the glass bowl of chocolate on top. Keep stirring until all of the chocolate melts

7. Spoon ¼ tsp of peanut butter on top of the banana chunks then cover each one with the melted chocolate (I placed each banana chunk on a tablespoon and drizzled the melted chocolate on top)

8. Place each one back on the parchment paper and place in the fridge for 10 minutes to set

Sweet Potato Crisps

Ingredients –
1 sweet potato
Low calorie oil spray (coconut/rapeseed)
Savoury spices (piri/piri, Cajun etc)
Sweet spices (cinnamon)

Method –
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees (fan assisted)

2. Wash and thinly slice the sweet potato with a mandoline or sharp knife

3. Split the sweet potato slices in half and cover one with coconut oil spray and the other in rapeseed oil spray (or whatever oil used)

4. Fill 2 mixing bowls each with the savoury and sweet spices then place each sweet potato slices in the relevant bowl and mix together until covered well.

5. Spread the sweet potato slices on a baking tray and cook in the oven until cooked and crisp. Mine took around 12 minutes but the time will depend on how thick your slices are. Check regularly to avoid burning.
