Coconut Banana Bites

[dcwsb size="horizontal" align="left" inline="true" id="topbutton" title="Coconut Banana Bites"]

My granny made these for her neighborhood cocktail parties that were all the rage in the 1960’s because she was known as the “it” girl when it came to cooking.

I served these to my client’s children when I worked as a private chef. They think the coconut crust is made from cookies, but I serve them because they have wholesome ingredients like a bite of fresh fruit.

  1. Carmen Williams says:

    is there anything you can substitute the coconut with?

  2. Sure, you can use a good quality whole grain cookie, just crush into crumbs. Or a few toasted nuts crushed!

  3. I would love to make these and bring them to the office as a snack for my co-workers. However, I noticed the recipe says to serve immediately. Will they still be good a few hours after preparing or is there a way to preserve them, so I can make them the night before?
