These warm, gooey Almond Butter Baked Bananas are such a simple and delicious way to satisfy your sweet tooth without any added sugar!
Man, some things can be so complicated. You know how I told you I’m studying sensory science? It’s basically the study of why we like the foods we like. Well do you know how many aromas are in wine? Like a zillion.
I’ve spent the past few days hooked up to a special sniffing machine which takes apart the molecules of wine so you can smell each individually. Sniffs included “burnt fruit”, “grains”, and “fresh flower”. Cool right? Now I’m expected to match those smells to specific molecules with
science voodoo magic, which I expect to take no less than every daylight hour.
But some things can be so simple, like this simple, humble Almond Butter Baked Banana. This recipe is one of many from the 21 Day Vegetarian Reset that I loved so much I’ll be making it long after the 21 days are over. It’s a delicious sugar craving fixer, with warm banana, gooey almond butter, and a sprinkle of cinnamon for good measure.
- 2 bananas
- 2 Tbsp almond butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
- With peel still on, slice halfway through the banana, lengthwise.
- Use your finger to widen the pocket, then stuff with almond butter and sprinkle with cinnamon.
- Wrap with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes, or until banana is tender. Allow to cool slightly before digging in!
