Let us take a moment to thank whoever invented the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Plus banana. Plus honey. Plus Cinnamon. Okay, you get where I’m going with this.
My sweets cravings have been having their own sweets cravings lately. It’s madness.
The trick is to trick your body into thinking the cravings are winning, while still choosing foods that are good for you and wont kill your clean eating efforts!
That is exactly what this little sliver of heaven does for me.
*1 Banana *Raw Honey *Cinnamon *Natural Peanut Butter *Dark Chocolate Chips *Pecans (optional)*
Preheat your oven to 210 degrees!!
Slice your banana in half.
Sprinkle with the banana with cinnamon.
Spread about a tablespoon of Natural Peanut Butter inside of the banana. I like Skippy’s, but any would work!
Next, squeeze the honey all over the peanut butter and then lay on the pecans, or any nut that you choose.
Then you lay the dark chocolate chips on top!
Close the banana together and wrap it in aluminum foil.
Sit it upright in your oven. Bake for about 15 minutes. Make sure your chocolate and peanut butter are all melted together!
Dj decided that since I accidentally broke the banana in half that he was entitled to the second half of it! Lesson learned: when eating in front of others, make two!! 🙂
