Choco-Banana Rolls

I guess chocolate-banana is one of those classic combinations which cannot go wrong. How about if you bring in coconut to the mix.. and add a doze of raw hemp hearts, and a serving of coconut oil.. yummm...... and that is what I would call a quick'n'healthy treat. This can satisfy your chocolate cravings, it has a good doze of plant based fat and protein, and it is naturally sweet because of bananas and a teeny bit of raw honey. My son has already certified it as one of the best 'quick thingies' that I make :-) Serve it as a dessert, or as quick after school snack, so quick that you can do this in less than 5 minutes.


Ingredient

  • Dried shredded coconut - 4 Tbs.
  • Raw cacao powder - 2 Tbs
  • Virgin coconut oil - 1 Tbs
  • Raw honey - 1 tsp
  • Ripe banana - 1
  • Raw hemp hearts - 1 Tbs




Directions:
  • Grind the coconut using a coffee grinder. 
  • In a bowl mix ground coconut, cacao, coconut oil and honey into a thick paste.
  • Apply evenly on banana. 
  • Sprinkle hemp evenly or just spread hemp in a plate and roll the choco-coated banana to get the hemp hearts stick on it.
  • That's all, just slice and serve.. Enjoy!!

  1. All my favorite things rolled into one! Have you ever tried freezing these? I'm wondering if they'd hold up well in a packed lunch if they were first frozen over night.

    2. Hi Dana, I tried freezing them yest.. after thawing, the choco part held up really well, but the banana was all mushy.. so I personally would not prefer it that way :-(
