So this may not be a “recipe” but its genius. One night, later than I would like to admit, Rob and I were laying in bed wanting a delicious treat. As we were talking about healthy options… I asked him who in the world thought of “ants on a log” (you know, the traditional celery, peanut butter and raisins and his response was, “I don’t know, someone on a diet”? It made me laugh and resonated with me deeply…celery is like a calorie free cracker for some, but for me… it just doesn’t cut the mustard. So we replaced celery with a banana and raisins for chocolate. Waa Laa… a banana boat was born.

Ingredients

1 banana (no ones judging if you want to make that 2)
2 teaspoons almond butter (or peanut)
12 dark chocolate chunks or a whole lot more

Instructions

Slice banana, spread nut butter & place those dark chocolate chunks in a row. ENJOY!

 

We buy our dark chocolate chunks at whole foods but if your in a bind and dont have time to make an extra trip to wf, trader joes sells semi-sweet chocolate chunks… I know from experience that those work just as well.

    The Banana Boat sounds perfect for a late night snack. I should have said an anytime snack.
