What Are Frozen Banana Snickers?

Frozen banana snickers are a healthy twist on the classic Snickers bar. Ripe bananas are layered with a creamy peanut butter nougat and crunchy peanuts, then coated in rich, melted chocolate and chilled.

I make them in a silicone muffin tin which is different than others. There’s less mess and waste, it’s easier to assemble, and easy to store.

Ingredients for Banana Snickers

You’ll need a short list of basic ingredients to make this banana snickers recipe. You most likely have most on hand, all you need is room in your freezer!

Peanut butter, bananas, peanuts, chocolate chips, coconut oil.
  • Bananas: I used 3 large bananas. Look for yellow bananas that are just ripe and sweet. Overripe bananas will be too mushy.
  • Peanut butter: Use smooth peanut butter for easy spreading.
  • Peanuts: Salted roasted peanuts add that signature Snickers taste and crunch.
  • Chocolate chips: Use whatever you have on hand, I had semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Coconut oil: Combined with the chocolate to thin it out, making it easier to drizzle and coat. It also helps the chocolate harden.

How to Make Banana Snickers

These banana snickers need less than 15 minutes of prep time with no baking or cooking. They’re so easy, you’ll be making these healthy banana snacks all the time!

Step by step process how to make frozen banana Snickers bites in a muffin tin.
  • Melt chocolate: Add chocolate chips and coconut oil to a small pot. Set burner to low heat and cook until melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Alternatively, you can add them to a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave.
  • Add chocolate to muffin tin: Drizzle a bit less than a tablespoon of melted chocolate into the bottom of each muffin cup. No need to measure exactly, just eyeball it and leave half the chocolate for topping.
  • Layer remaining ingredients: To each cup add 4 or 5 slices of banana, followed by 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, and 1 tablespoon of peanuts. Drizzle with the remaining chocolate and sprinkle with optional crushed peanuts.
  • Freeze: Place muffin tin in the freezer and freeze for 2 hours. Once the chocolate has set and the bananas are firm, carefully pop the frozen banana bites out by pushing from the bottom of each mold. Enjoy!

Tips for Best Results

By following these simple tips, you’re banana snickers will taste just like a snickers ice cream bar.

  • If using metal muffin tin: Make sure to use muffin liners so the chocolate doesn’t stick to the pan after freezing.
  • Use sweet bananas: They should be ripe but firm so you get the sweet taste and creamy texture. Unripe bananas won’t be sweet enough, and overripe may be too soft.
  • Measure ingredients approximately: I use just regular tablespoon to drizzle all ingredients. This recipe would be very hard to do with proper measuring spoons. It’s OK to eat more of wholesome ingredients.
  • If you don’t have coconut oil: You can use equal amount of melted butter.

When you buy a Snickers bar there’s only one option, but these healthier frozen banana snickers have tons! Here are few fun and creative ways to dress them up.

  • Chocolate: Feel free to use your favorite chocolate. Dark chocolate would be the healthiest option with low sugar, or make them dairy-free and vegan with your go-to vegan chocolate. You can even try white chocolate chips or any flavored baking chips like caramel, butterscotch, Skor, or Reese’s, you name it!
  • Nuts: If you have a peanut allergy or want to experiment with flavor, swap peanuts for another type of nut. Chopped almonds, cashews, or walnuts will all add crunch and nutty flavor.
  • Nut butter: Peanut butter and banana have been a pair for decades, but any unsweetened nut butter will work. Try almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, or WOWbutter.
  • Add dried fruit: Dried fruit can enhance the flavor and add a pop of color! Dried cranberries would add a tart taste, adding raisins would make it similar to a fruit and nut bar, or make it a tropical snack with coconut flakes and dried pineapple or apricot.
  • Add sea salt: A pinch of sea salt sprinkled on top would balance out the sweetness.

How to Store Banana Snickers Bites

At first you’ll have to freeze them for 2 hours and then you can enjoy. To fully freeze banana snickers it will take about 4 hours.

Once they’re frozen, transfer to an airtight container or freezer-safe bag and keep frozen for up to 3 months.

You don’t need to thaw snicker banana bites before enjoying because it is full of ingredients with healthy fats that do not freeze much.
