Banana Split Cake Bites

It's been a while since I've been so excited to share a new recipe here! I can't get enough of these Banana Split Bites. They are the perfect dessert with their small size, healthy element, and popping flavors. Together, each component creates a delicious combination that satisfies both my cake and ice cream cravings. It doesn't get better than that.

Isaiah 53:3-4
He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he took up our infirmities and he carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.
