Recipe type: Dessert / Sweet
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6-8 alfajores
  • 1 banana
  • 1 100% raw cacao chocolate bar (* This kind of chocolate may be too bitter for some people. You can use sweetened chocolate if you prefer, or add some honey to the melted chocolate)
  • ¼ cup dried coconut (unsweetened)
  • 2-4 tablespoons peanut butter
  1. Cut the banana in round slices.
  2. Melt the chocolate over a pan of boiling water.
  3. Put the banana slices in the chocolate, and make sure to cover every side.
  4. Place on a dish cover with oiled parchment paper or Silpat. Put in the drige until it hardens (you can also put in in the freezer for a quicker result).
  5. With the help of a sharp knife, slowly take every banana slice from the dish. Do it gently and carefully so the chocolate doesn't break and separate from the banana.
  6. Put a little bit (1/2 teaspoon - 1 teaspoon) of peanut butter on a banana slice, and cover with another one. Do this until you have used all the slices.
  7. Sprinkle with dried coconut, and serve, or keep in the fridge or freezer.
