Saturday Share: Adina's Peanut Butter Cups

Want some ice cream, but you're dieting?

Or maybe you want just a little something sweet but don't want to be stuck with a cake or pie or a dozen cookies.

How about a frozen treat that's healthy and easy to make--plus, something that can be frozen and doled out one at a time so there's always a healthy treat available when you want it?

Then you must try the recipe my daughter Adina came up with. It really does fulfill the desire for ice cream--without the fat and sugar.

Adina's Peanut Butter Cups

1 muffin tin with a paper cupcake liner in each well (you can also use silicone re-useable liners)
3 views of the finished treats
Sliced bananas
Frozen blueberries
Peanut butter ( I use Laura Scudder Chunky but smooth works also.)

In each cupcake liner, place:
  * Banana slices -- 3 or 4 against the side of the liner.
  * Layer 1: a spoonful of frozen blueberries for the bottom layer.
  * Layer 2: a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter.
  * Layer 3: 2 or 3 banana slices overlapping to form a rough triangle.
  * Layer 4: a spoonful of peanut butter

Place muffin tin in freezer for a couple of hours. When frozen, remove the treats and place in a large freezer-style Ziplok bag or similar. If you used the silicone liners, remove them from that also.

Simply delicious as a frozen dessert or as an energy-power pick-me-up. I like this so much that I'm going to try inserting a layer of chocolate chips after layer 2.
