Bananas are among the world’s most popular fruits.

Native to Southeast Asia, they are now grown in many warm parts of the world.

Bananas vary in color, size and shape. 

The most common type is the Cavendish, which is a type of dessert banana. Green when unripe, it yellows as it matures.

Bananas contain a fair amount of fibre, as well as several antioxidants. 

Peanut butter is rich in a variety of nutrients — but it's also rich in calories and fat. While the healthy fats in peanut butter are nutritious, you should consume them in moderation to avoid unwanted weight gain or potential health problems. Commercial peanut butter brands often have added sugars, oils, and fats. That is why you should try to make your own peanut butter, all you need is a good food processor.

First step is to stick the chocolate skewer into the banana.

I have to honest here, this time I couldn't find the chocolate skewers I want so I used these ones with biscuit, which are not the ideal as they are to big and can brake the banana. So, the ideal ones are those very skinny and just chocolate.

Then place the banana in the freezer for 5 minutes, while you are melting the chocolate.

This is a messy step my friends, doesn't really look in the pictures because my hands were fully mess of chocolate, but yes, it can be a disaster if you are not careful. 

Once the chocolate is melted you have to deep the bananas in it. With the help of a knife on the bottom, so the banana doesn't break.

Take it out to a baking paper to dry in a flat surface and put the sprinkles of your choice on the top. Here I chose the omega seed mix but anything works really, so be creative.

When they are ready, place it in the fridge for half an hour.
