Frozen Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites

I can’t stop snacking on these yummy frozen Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites. I have seen many versions in Magazines including Outside Magazine, but the one we like the most here at the Beach Bungalow is the Peanut Butter and Chocolate. They are so easy to make and so worth it! Did I mention they are healthier than ice cream?!

Beach House Banana Bread (no eggs, no dairy)

19 Mar

I love making this bread because it is so moist and delicious plus it is a great snack to take along in my lunchbox for those days I want something sweet. Add additional   fresh fruit to the slice of banana bread to give it that extra yumminess.  I use applesauce to replace the egg, soy milk to replace buttermik and vegan margarine to replace butter. You can add nuts or chocolate chips to the bread.  This recipe can also be used to make muffins.
