Servings: 4-6
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Peel bananas first, then freeze in resealable plastic bag.

Place a serving plate in the refrigerator or freezer to chill; this is so pops don't melt immediately on the plate once they're made.

Put coconut oil in small saucepan and melt on low heat. Remove from heat as soon as coconut oil is completely melted.

Add chocolate chips and stir until chocolate is melted. If chocolate chips do not completely melt, return to heat for 10 seconds. Do not cook; the mixture should be barely warm to touch.

Slice frozen bananas about 3/4 inch thick. Skewer each piece with a toothpick and dip quickly in chocolate. Wait a few seconds for chocolate to harden then place on the chilled plate.

Serve and enjoy!

Why do you call these "Chocolate coconut" when you're just using coconut oil (no coconut flavor)?? Can you substitute CCC and get coconut flavor? I think banana and coconut would be FABULOUS!

Rebekah: If you use Gold Label Virgin Coconut oil you will definitely get a coconutty taste. If you want more of the "meaty" coconut taste though, you can experiment with adding CCC to the recipe.

I think it would be delicious to keep the banana whole or 1/2 of a banana, put it on a popcicle stick and roll it in coconut before freezing.

Rebekah, I bet they'd be great if you rolled them in shredded coconut or coconut flakes, but I think you'd have to do it really quickly before the chocolate hardens. =]

These little bites might be good for kids. I love doing a half a banana on the stick w/ the chocolate and rolling it in something, but I'm thinking that might be a bit much for my daughter.

If you use the Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, they do have a bit of a coconut taste. If you increase the ratio of coconut oil, and it will add coconut flavor and be even more of a cruncy shell. (Of course the more processed coconut oil doesn't have the coconut flavor.)

Like someone else says, you could roll in shredded coconut immediately after dipping if you wanted more coconut flavor.

I made 2 batches of these yesterday. I added some shredded coconut to the second batch of melted chocolate and they were as good or better than the first batch! I noticed I had better results when I placed the bananas in the freezer for 20 minutes before dipping them into the chocolate. Peace
