A Simple Way to Curb Your Sweet Tooth

A Simple Way to Curb Your Sweet Tooth

Skinnytaste.com is one of my absolute favorite healthy recipe websites!  The author, Gina, has pages of healthy recipes ranging from desserts, drinks, appetizers, breakfast, lunch, dinner, paleo and gluten-free inspired!  All of the recipes I have tried from her website have all turned out to be absolutely delicious!  Even my husband, who is a bit picky, always wants seconds!

Gina’s recipe, Baked Bananas, mimics one of my favorite desserts – Bananas Foster.  You simply take a banana, lightly sweeten it with honey and a dash of cinnamon, bake it and YUM!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium ripe banana, cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 tsp honey
  • cinnamon

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
  • Cut your bananas lengthwise
  • Place your bananas on parchment paper
  • Dust cinnamon and honey on top (do this step to your liking!)
  • Bake for about 10 minutes

(The longer you let them cook, the softer & more foster-like your dessert will become!)

Health Benefits

Even better, bananas have many health benefits!  They are loaded with potassium and are heart healthy, they can assist with boosting your mood and overcoming depression, aid with digestion and weight loss due to their high fiber content, help improve/maintain your vision health and they help keep your bones strong!

Whether you try Baked Bananas or another recipe from Skinnytaste.com, share which one you end up trying!
