I just love sushi although I suck pretty much at rolling it. I don’t know how people get them to look all neat and accurate. I really need to take a sushi rolling course or something like that. ;-) So after our last sushi rolling disaster (they tasted amazing but didn’t look very nice), Flo came up with the idea of making sweet sushi. I first thought of exotic fruits in rice paper rolls, but then we ended up with these easy banana sushi rolls that are covered in chocolate and topped with pistachios, coconut flakes, chia and sesame seeds. No rolling required! ;-)
The banana sushi rolls are really easy to make and are sooo delicious! All you need is three bananas (or of course more if you like), peanut butter, dark chocolate, pistachios, coconut flakes, and chia and sesame seeds. First coat the bananas with peanut butter, then cover them with melted chocolate and sprinkle them with the above named toppings. Let the chocolate harden for a couple of minutes, this will take about 5-10 minutes depending on how warm it is in your kitchen. On hot summer days, put them in the freezer for a few minutes. To avoid chocolatey fingers, I sticked toothpicks in both ends of the bananas, so it’s easier to hold them while you cover them with chocolate. Then cut them into bite-sized sushi pieces with a sharp knife and you’re done. I told you it was super easy, didn’t I?
Chopped nuts like almonds or peanuts are also great toppings. You can either eat the banana sushi right away or freeze it for an hour and two and enjoy it as easy vegan ice cream bites. I love having them wait for me in the freezer, so I can just get one once in a while (or every other hour) as a little treat. :-)
I hope you enjoy this recipe. If you make these banana sushi rolls I’d love to hear from you how you liked them. :-) Hope you all have a great weekend!
