Choc Banana PB Jars

the bottom

  • 2 frozen bananas, chopped*
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter**
  • 1 tablespoon cacao or cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon coconut cream
  • 2 teaspoons honey***
  • 1/2 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

the middle

  • 1/2 cup buckwheat, rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter**
  • 1 tablespoon honey***

the top

  • 2 bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  1. Let’s start at the middle. Preheat your oven to 175°C or 350°F. Line a tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the peanut butter and honey for the middle layer into a bowl and mix to combine. Add the buckwheat. Mix until coated. Spread the buckwheat onto a baking tray and use the back of a spoon to flatten it. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Turn the tray half way through cooking.
  3. For the top layer heat the oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add the bananas in a single layer and cook until golden.
  4. You can make the first layer anytime and pop it into the fridge or freezer while waiting on the other layers. To make the first layer place all of the ingredients into your processor and blend at high speed until the mixture resembles an ice cream consistency. Spoon the mixture evenly over two jars and place in the fridge or freezer (the freezer option will be thicker) until the jars are ready to assemble.
  5. Assemble all three layers starting with the ice cream, then crunch and then the fried bananas.
  6. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

*peel well ripened bananas prior to freezing.

** to make these nut free use this recipe for the middle layer and omit the PB in the bottom layer.

***you can use rice malt syrup if you prefer.

    Happy Australia Day! You are driving me crazy with these scrummy recipes, I can’t wait to try this one! Coincidentally ( again), for breakfast today ( before I got this post), I had tofu liquidised with…banana and peanut butter, with toasted buckwheat sprinkled on top…uncanny or what?! I have to scoot out of the kitchen when it’s being liquidised, but it’s worth it! I add cinnamon and sultanas to mine, but nothing chocolatey. Your recipe is much more decadent..mmmmmmm! The peanut butter and buckwheat layer sounds incredible- will it cook like the “Crunch” slice recipe, that uses tahini? I’m addicted to that, but think I could seriously OD on a peanut butter version! At this rate, I’ll be rivalling Elvis in his latter days….! xxx
    PS Another beautiful post about your lovely family, thank you x

    • Thank YOU! Yes, it is very much like the crunch recipe and I hope you enjoy it!

    Is it possible to make it with fresh bananas? We don’t have a freezer. .. I assume it would be more like a mousse than ice cream…

    After a long, hard day, all I wanted this Friday night was to eat some unhealthy food and have a cocktail. I made this beauty instead. It was amazing. Better than a cocktail, and that is saying something! The ice cream layer…oh yum…I never need to eat commercial chocolate ice cream ever again!

    • Thank YOU!!!! I am glad you enjoyed it and that it helped with your cravings. Be sure to let me know how you go with anything else that you try. x
