More Natural" Chocolate Covered Banana Bites & Dark Chocolate Shavings 
- 170 grams of banana (this was 2 medium sized bananas for me) 
- unsweetened cocoa powder 
- 1 1/4 tablespoon coconut oil 
- 1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar 

Cut banana into slices and set aside. In a small bowl, mix sugar, cocoa powder, and coconut oil--> microwave (~6-10 seconds) until liquid and stir. 

Spray a plate or flat pan with coconut oil; you can then either dip each piece  into the chocolate coating then place onto plate or place all bananas on plate and pour liquid over until all are coated (only do this option if using a plate with a dipped center, to avoid a kitchen disaster).  

Once fully coated, place plate in freezer for 1-2 hours. Then remove from freezer and with a sharp knife, scrape bananas one by on off plate. They may not come up easily and the coating will break into small shreds (this is good because the chocolate sauce is pretty strong, so a 3/4 coated bite is perfect). 

I saved my extra coating left on the plate and used it as shavings to top my deserts with-- um so good!
