I recently shared my frustration that I had caught myself buying “energy”, “protein”, or “health” bars feeling that I was doing something healthy only to realize I was eating glorified cookies or candy bars. These treats may have had some positive nutritional properties but they also contained a lot of over processed ingredients and refined sugar. With this in mind the recipe below caught my eye as a nice alternative. If you are looking for a healthy snack option that also takes care of your sweet tooth, give this puppy a try.

1 large, ripe banana
1 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon ground flax
1 to 2 tablespoons Grape-Nuts cereal
honey or agave nectar
In a small bowl, combine pumpkin pie spice, flax, and cereal. With a knife, completely cover banana with peanut butter. Roll banana in the spice, flax, cereal mixture until it is completely coated. Drizzle with honey or agave nectar. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
