Chocolately Banana Goodness

I've been trying to clean up my diet lately.  When I do that, I get rid of just about anything in the house that might tempt me to eat it that doesn't classify as "Paleo".  Let's be honest: I have zero willpower and the second I crave sugar or whathaveyou, I cave.  Well tonight I had the worst of cravings and I REALLY REALLY wanted ice cream.  BUT...I'm being good and not going to make an emergency dash to the store  just to have buyers remorse 30 seconds later.  Instead I got creative.  I remember how delicious frozen bananas were and that they simulated ice cream, so I decided to go one step further and coat them in chocolate.  Welcome Chocolately Banana Goodness.

Here's how you do it:

Get yourself some Lindt 90% Dark Chocolate.

Why this?  Because the whole bar only has 9 grams of sugar.  It's hard to beat and it tastes delicious.

If you need a label to be satisfied, here it is:

Next, heat a sauce pan over low heat, break up the bar into squares and slowly melt.

While the chocolate is melting, peel and quarter some bananas.

Bananas. Word.

Place quartered bananas on parchment paper.  I covered a paper plate with the parchment paper first.

Then drizzle the chocolate over the bananas.

When I figure out how to turn the flash off, I will.  Until then, you get shiny chocolately banana goodness.

Place the chocolate-covered bananas in the freezer.  If you're like me you'll check them every 5 minutes and after about 20 minutes grab one anyways and eat it.  It will be good, but not as good as if you were to give them about 30-45 minutes.
