Bananas and tahini are a match made in heaven!
These are such an awesome, guilt-free treat!
MAGIC SHELL BANANA TREATS
Adapted from this recipe
1 large banana, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 T. tahini
1-2 T. coconut oil
1 T. honey (or maple syrup, if vegan)
1/4 t. vanilla
black sesame seeds, for topping
Freeze banana pieces. Heat tahini, honey, and oil just until mixed (my tahini is a bit runny already, so I only need 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, but I've bought others that were thicker, so use your best judgment!). Add a teeny pinch of salt and vanilla. Dip frozen banana pieces into tahini mix and roll around until coated. Place on a plate covered with wax paper. Top with sesame seeds (I prefer black) and freeze again until shell hardens.
We snacked on these throughout the day, and they were well-loved by all...and gone by the end of the day. 🙂 I think they'd also be great with peanut butter!
