So, this week I've kind of been craving something SWEET... so, I found a recipe on Civilized Caveman that I had to try.. here's the link civilizedcavemancooking.
Chocolate Bacon Almond Butter Bananas!!
It's so quick and easy.. make one or two.. or a whole batch!
Here's how I made it:
1/2 a banana
1 tbsp Almond Butter
1/2 slice of crisp bacon
1 tbsp of chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life brand)
I cut the banana and spread the Almond Butter on one half, topped with the 1/2 slice of bacon and then sandwiched the other half of the banana. Put in the freezer for 30 minutes or until you're ready to eat. When you're ready, put 1 tbsp of the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and cook for 1 minute (that's enough to melt them but they won't "look" melted.. just use a litte spatula to smoosh them), Cover the banana sandwich with the chocolate. It will set quickly on the cold banana. Depending on how long you left them in the freezer, let it set for about 10 minutes to softened.. and then EATem up!
Here's the nutrition:
Enjoy the treat!
