The Crazy Banana Dessert by Jon Breen
Hey readers (or reader, haha),
I came up with this recipe after finding a limited amount of good, healthy, filling, dessert options. I’m not a big ice cream eater (love it tho), had to give up cereal before bed (the milk goes crazy in my stomach at night… lol), and a lot of other frozen low fat options were either unfufulling, or full of sugar and other unhealthy stuff. So I came up with this as a conglomeration of healthy foods I already eat. Now it’s all in one dish! Yay!
It’s a really simple recipe that has a lot of flexibility to it. This version is my favorite so far:
Start with a brown rice cake
Put natural peanut butter on the top as evenly as you can
Slice a banana into 1/4 inch coins.
Mash on top of the peanut butter.
Drizzle with honey (as much as you want)
Sprinkle with Cinnamon
Add a nut or two in the middle
Add some berries on the side
And voila! The Crazy Banana. It’s not low-fat, but it is chock full of good healthy food. The natural peanut butter has no sugar added and is simply peanuts and water. The berries have antioxidants, the nuts and peanut butter have good fat, and will help you feel full and satiated, the cinnamon can help regulate blood sugar, the banana has potassium, and the brown rice cake has pretty much nothing in it, but helps the dessert stay together.

Anyway, it may look a little strange, but it makes me full, doesn’t give me stomach issues, is all natural, and, well, yummy!
And please let me know if you have a desert you would like to share. I’m always looking for more healthy recipes. Thanks!
