2.  Place half the banana slices on a piece of parchment (or wax) paper.  Dab each slices with a small amount of peanut butter and top with remaining slices.  Put in freezer for about an hour or until mostly frozen.

3.  While the slices are freezing, combine chocolate peanut butter and coconut oil into a bowl and microwave just until melted, stirring occasionally.  Once bananas are frozen, insert a toothpick into each bite and dip in the chocolate mixture.
