This is all that and a bag of chips! It’s a waffle, carefully folded into the shape of a taco, stuffed with fresh banana, peanut butter mousse, topped with chocolate sauce, decorated with chopped peanuts and then frozen. Waffles, as it turns out, make a pretty delicious taco shell. Are you ready for a simple, frozen treat that tastes like peanut butter cups?!?!!
The challenge this month from The Recipe Redux is to “show us your healthy, creative take on the taco.” For a brief moment, I considered making a regular savory taco of some sort. That thought was quickly banished as I considered the possibility or a dessert taco and how much more fun that would be!
These Peanut Butter Banana Waffle Tacos don’t sound healthy at all. That’s what makes them extra special. There’s a secret in here, a healthy secret, that I highly recommend you don’t tell anyone. Just sit back and watch them get devoured with a knowing smile :-).
The sweet tacos are a great portable dessert, no plates or forks or spoons needed. Let them thaw just a little before eating and they’re hands on, on the go, deliciousness. This makes them amazing for a kid’s treat. They’re also super easy to make and I bet the kids would love being involved in the making of them too! (they could probably make them look prettier than mine lol — some uneven stuffing of the waffles there…oops!)
