the base is my favorite part because it’s made with fresh bananas, dates and peanut butter. is there a better trio? i can’t recall one!
a chocolate coating on top is one hundred percent necessary by the way, and as usual, it’s very easy to make.
you simply have to melt chocolate chips with coconut oil and then stir in a little bit of vanilla extract!
