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.

    Love it! Super easy and it fills that craving for something sweet. I just cut out all processed sugars and honey, maple syrup, etc. this was my saving grace!

      Doesn’t it just satisfy that sweet tooth so perfectly? We also relied on these when we cut out sugar and sweets 😀

  2. Read says:

    Hi there, do these need to be eaten warm? Are they suitable to bring to a potluck? Thank you!

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Read! These are best warm, so I’m not sure they would be best for bringing to a potluck (especially because they can also get a little messy). Better for a personal snack or treat!
