Gluten-Free Chocolate Banana Cups

I was craving something sweet and we had a ton of bananas. I searched one of my favorite healthy recipe pages - Chocolate Covered Katie.  She had a recipe that I instantly knew I would love.  You can find it here:  http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/08/02/chocolate-monkey-peanut-butter-bites/ 




Here's the recipe (copied almost exactly from Katie's website): 

  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 20-30 nunaturals vanilla stevia drops (or 3-4 tbsp liquid sweetener, such as agave) 
  • 1/2 a banana 
  • tiny pinch salt
Combine first three ingredients in a bowl and stir until it makes a chocolate sauce. (Side note: We didnt have liquid stevia. We used about 3 tbsp of powdered stevia, and about 1 tbsp of 100% pure maple syrup). Pour a little of the sauce (saving the rest for later) into the bottoms of cupcake liners, mini cupcake liners, or candy molds. Then freeze 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, blend (or mash and stir with a fork) the banana, and salt. Take liners out of the freezer and top each with banana mixture. Now evenly distribute the rest of the chocolate and re-freeze until solid. This recipe makes 8 cups. Gluten-free!
