Banana Pops

Serves: 8

   1 1/3 cups ground toasted almonds, ground coconut, candy sprinkles or graham cracker crumbs
   4 ripe bananas, peeled
   1/2 cup agave
   8 popsicles sticks

Banana Pops is from the Cook'n with Agave collection.

Spread ground nuts (or other topping of choice) on a plate or plates. Cut bananas in half crosswise. Insert a craft stick into each cut end. To assemble, hold each banana half over plate or waxed paper to catch drips. Spoon about 1 Tbsp. agave over banana, rotating and smoothing agave with back of spoon to coat all sides. (Or, squeeze agave from a plastic agave bear container and smooth out with spoon.) Roll banana in topping of choice until coated on all sides, pressing with fingertips to help topping adhere. Place pops on waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining bananas, agave and topping. Serve at once.
