Spooky Banana Pops


Spooky Banana Pops | Plaid and PaleoI got this fabulous idea from Skinny Taste and really wanted to make it paleo. Last year I made almond joy bites, but I wanted to make a simple treat this year. These spooky little banana pops are so cute! I created a paleo “white chocolate” to make a hard shell around frozen bananas. My nieces couldn’t wait to gobble them up. This treat is easy to make with only a couple ingredients. Plus they aren’t loaded with sugar so you don’t feel any guilt giving them to little ones. My nephew is currently obsessed with bananas, and I swear his favorite word is na-na. I like to pretend he is trying to say my name but let’s be honest he just wants a banana. He loved these banana pops, which really made my day!

Halloween is just around the corner, and I am once again faced with the decision of what to wear. I love making my own costumes and pride myself by dressing up as semi-unique costumes. Now here is where I reached a dilemma. I bought an authentic dirndl in Germany and feel I should wear it; however, that isn’t very creative. If anyone has creative ideas to spruce up a dirndl, I’d love to hear them! You can see a picture of the dirndl here. I thought about being Goldie Locks but I don’t have blond hair. My creative juices are just not flowing in the costume department this year. What is everyone else dressing up for?
