Banana Granola Pops

New Banana Granola Pops

Summer is almost here. That means summer bodies need to be whipped into existence and it’s going to be that much harder when you’re like us and are CONSTANTLY craving a hunk of dark chocolate every afternoon at 3:45pm. What can be done to satisfy the sweet tooth that’s still waistline-friendly?

Granola Banana Pops!

This recipe, using Viki’s Granola – our favorite because it’s gluten free and made with 100% all natural ingredients – is super simple and fun to do with friends, family, and especially kids if you have a brood of your own, or just happen to be babysitting. And, it’s idiot-proof so you actually can’t mess it up.

4 Bananas
3 tablespoons Viki’s Banana Walnut Granola
6 ounces dark chocolate chips or shards (unsweetened or a higher percentage of cocoa is healthier)
8 Popsicle sticks

Get To Work:
– Cut bananas in half
– Peel, bananas and insert Popsicle sticks. Place on a parchment-lined tray, cover with plastic wrap and freeze for about 3 hours.
– Place Viki’s Banana Walnut Granola into a shallow dish.
– Melt chocolate in a double boiler over slightly simmering water, over low heat, constantly stirring.
– Pour the chocolate into a tall glass. Dip each banana into the chocolate and roll in the granola straightaway. Place on a parchment-lined tray. Serve immediately or wrap individually in parchment paper or plastic wrap to be put back in the freezer for later consumption.
