I have a wicked sweet tooth, and often just have to indulge, but I don’t want my treats to completely derail me from healthy eating (ok, there’s sometimes a place for a delicious doughnut from a local shop, or a slice of chocolate cake).
This healthy baked banana has no added sugar, just what’s naturally in the banana itself and some stevia-sweetened chocolate chips. You don’t need the typical marshmallows and loads of chocolate. I’ve even topped mine with a few dollops of greek yogurt that I added vanilla stevia to. Sprinkle with cinnamon, and you’ve got the perfect indulgence.
